Package: dpkg-cross
Version: 2.5.8+morelibs
Severity: minor


the Section of the generated package is hardcoded as "devel"; when
converting non-free packages, this makes the converted packages appear
as if they were part of main.

If there is a component prefix in the original package's Section, this
should probably be taken over to the generated package.
