Subject: vcdimager: install-info installed leads to /usr/share/info/dir.gz in built package
Date: Sun, 19 Sep 2010 15:49:11 +0200
Package: vcdimager
Version: 0.7.23-4
Severity: normal
Tags: squeeze, sid
Usertags: infodir

This package creates usr/share/info/dir during the build process if the
install-info package is installed. The built package will then contain
the file usr/share/info/dir.gz.

Nobody on d-devel disagreed to set the severity level to 'serious' if
packages in the archive are affected [0] and normal if they ae not. This
is the case on sh4 [1] which is not in the main archive.



Added tag(s) wheezy. Request was from Kurt Roeckx <> to (Wed, 16 Feb 2011 19:04:41 GMT) Full text and rfc822 format available.
