Package: pd-pmpd
Version: 0.9-1
Severity: serious
Justification: fails to build from source

pd-pmpd fires up unoconv to convert its manual from Star Office's
native format to PDF, but unoconv evidently needs a writable $HOME for
whatever reason:

| unoconv -f pdf 
| stat: cannot read file system information for `/home/buildd': No such file or 
| [Java framework] Error in function createSettingsDocument (elements.cxx).
| javaldx failed! 
| Error: Unable to connect or start own listener. Aborting.
| make[1]: *** [override_dh_auto_build] Error 251

To address this, you could either create and use a temporary $HOME or
split the docs and examples out into architecture-independent packages
(or perhaps a single such).

Could you please do so?

Fixed in the last upload, forgot to close on the changelog.
