Package: heroes-common
Version: 0.21-8.1
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.
