How do I avoid that?


By switching to format 3.0 (quilt) [1], which allows us to strip
upstream's debian directory without repacking the original tarball.

Hmm, upstream (as in the original 1.1.2 tarball) does not have a debian directory...? Second theory, can this be related to that I never updated the changelog? I was unsure of how to that with git-dch and all these semi-automatic tools expecting things to be in a certain way. (will "dch -i" do?)

Yes, this explains why git-buildpackage failed to generate a tarball from upstream + pristine-tar branches, and then (due to the lack of a tarball) dpkg-buildpackage assumed it was a native package and generated a tarball including (as is normal for native packages) the debian dir.

And yes, a simple "dch", "dch -i" or "dch -r", possibly with some some hand-editing of the changelog file, should do the trick: The topmost changelog entry must have an upstream version matching what you want to build.


Third, Squeeze is now frozen. Can this version still go into unstable, or
does it have to go into experimental?

I see several changes, so experimental would be the right place [2].

There are several changes, although seen from my perspective, 1.1.2 contain quite important bug fixes, and I find it both more stable and more tested than 1.1.1. Commenting on Launchpad bug #636473, I'm all for having 1.1.2 in Maverick.

What could help is to file bugreports against the package currently targeted testing, and then tag those bugs as closed by the newer release. That is the easiest way to help the release team judge if an exception should be made for this package.


Kind regards,
