I am not sure how to get rid of this lintian warning:

W: scenic source: package-lacks-versioned-build-depends-on-debhelper 7

Normal approach: Let debian/compat contain "7" and edit debian/control to have a tightened build-dependency on debhelper to at least version 7.

Funky CDBS approach: Copy debian/control to debian/control.in, edit debian/control.in to include the magic build-dependency @cdbs@, and invoke "DEB_MAINTAINER_MODE=1 debian/rules clean".

Then @cdbs@ gets expanded to build-dependencies resolved by CDBS, including the proper (unless you do something unusual requiring even tighter dependency) dependency on debhelper.


There's no need to quote those parts of my emails that you do not comment on.
