I’ve made a quick release of dh-make, now up to 0.52. Besides a minor dh_make.1 manual page fix this release will put the right value in the debian/source/format file. 0.51 will make it a native source package no matter what flags you use.
If you get weird lintian errors about native source formats and version numbers wrong on your brand-new Debian package you just made, you might of been bitten by this bug.
That leaves a few bugs left, there are two I need help with:
- Bug 328692 – If you have a plan ASCII name like me, then your name looks fine in the dh-make generated man pages. This bug requires converting names that aren’t plain ASCII (e.g. that use UTF-8) into something groff understands. Someone suggested decomposed unicode but unicode and groff are pretty much a black art to me, let alone combining them.
- Bug 533117 – This one is all about making dh-make make your python packages. You’ll need to understand the new debhelper v7 rules files. Again, python is not something I use so the bug is stuck here.
