Please either add a comment in there explaining why you believe that warning to be wrong, or remove the override: It is bad to silence lintian without a good reason!
I now commented out that lintian override for now. Feel free to reenable it, but please then add an explanation as noted there.
I am preparing an upload now. I would like the following to be improved soon:The packaging depends on a bunch of gstreamer packages and more. Are all of that *always* *crucial* for toonloop? Dependencies that toonloop can survive without for some (maybe exotic) use, should be relaxed to recommends.
Similar for build-dependencies: I noticed e.g. mencoder is a build-dependency, and that autotools check for it, but if not actually used at build time or in any tests, then I suggest improving upstream routines to distinguish between buildtime and runtime dependencies - e.g. only check for actual build dependencies in autotools and have the toonloop application check for runtime dependencies when invoked.
