Declare build-dependencies indirectly in rules file (not directly in dontrol file) to ease commenting and manipulation.

whoho, cdbs now requires to note the build dependencies in debian/rules?

Nope, it *allows* but does not *require*. Feel free to continue adding dependencies in debian/control as usual. Just allow me to move them to debian/rules later on.

Why does that remind me of yadayada?

I was around when yadayada was still around, but never succeeded understanding that beast. If I recall correctly, it was impossible to do an NMU of a yadayada-based package by changing debian/control, as yadayada would regenerate that file. This is not the case here.

But please do educate me: what is flawed in my approach?

Not that I'm strongly against cdbs, but this is very involved black
magic going on here. Please don't expect other team members to peer
review these kind of changes.

I did not expect anyone to do anything they don't like. But I certainly do not want to alienate myself completely either :-)

Which part do you consider "black magic"? Every change I did or only this move of dependencies? Did you see my later commit making use of that change?

perhaps it makes sense to (temporarily) disable the postcommit hook for the calf package, at least until this cdbs black magic stuff has settled?

Ah, I didn't think of that possibility. I thought that a commit list was for *all* commits and enyone wanting to use if for review would simply skip irrelevant ones (as that is somewhat subjective).

Which kinds of changes is it generally preferred that I not annoy the team with noise about?

And how do I most conveniently switch on and off that hook? I know that I can log into the server and change the execute bit of the hook itself but that also affects others potentially commiting at that time.
