Package: gpivtools
Version: 0.6.0-3.1
Severity: serious
Usertags: ftbfs

This package fails to build on current sid, because dpkg-genchanges
dies parsing the changelog date for 0.6.0-3, the second newest one,
which reads:

 -- Gerber van der Graaf <>  Wed, 17 April 
2012 14:19:01 +0100

This is not a legal date format, see policy 4.4. "April" should be "Apr".

Now, dpkg-genchanges could handle the error a bit better than dying with

  Error parsing time at /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/perl/5.20/Time/ line 
469, <$filehandle> line 15.

and it doesn't really need to parse the second newest changelog entry, it
only does that in case it's processing a binNMU. I'll file a separate bug
about those, but the gpivtools changelog should probably still be fixed.
