i see.
the first reaction on #debian-multimedia was: " *sigh* more cdbs..."

i'll try to fix that.
i never completely figured how to do the UTF-8 think correctly...

well yes:
i started from the original pd-zexy package, which had patches and
quiltified them.
when upgrading to the latest upstream release, these patches became
superfluous (since they were already included).
however, source/format now reads "3.0 (quilt)", so i thought that was
quiltification enough.

feel free to remove the line in the changelog.

that's a good idea.
i'll do that.
are there any tools for handling the NEWS file?
