Subject: bbe: install-info installed leads to /usr/share/info/dir.gz in built package
Date: Sun, 19 Sep 2010 22:46:55 +0200
Package: bbe
Version: 0.2.2-1
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 powerpcspe [1] which is not in the main archive.
