to libghc6?- to match both old and new names. (Attached patch actually

   * Summary of tag changes:
     + Added:
       - unknown-multi-arch-value
       - package-needs-versioned-debhelper-build-depends
     + Removed:
       - old-versioned-python-dependency
   * checks/binaries:
     + [ADB] Update binary-from-other-architecture's tests in line with the
       changes to filename output introduced in 2.5.0~rc1.
       (Closes: #614906)
   * checks/changes-file.desc:
     + [NT] Added oneiric as valid Ubuntu distribution.  Thanks to Benjamin
       Drung for the patch.  (Closes: #617227)
   * checks/deb-format:
     + [NT] Removed assumption that there was always a changelog in a binary
       with a data.tar.lzma member.
   * checks/debhelper:
     + [NT] Reduced package-lacks-versioned-build-depends-on-debhelper to a
       pedantic tag.  It is now only emitted for debhelper compat levels of
       7 or less, since even oldstable ships with debhelper 7.
     + [NT] Added package-needs-versioned-debhelper-build-depends, which
       replaces package-lacks-versioned-build-depends-on-debhelper old
       task of warning if a missing versioned depends may lead to a build
       failure.  Currently this is only emitted for compat 8 (or higher).
     + [NT] Stopped emitting tags for using dh_* (and dh) if these scripts
       is in debhelper 7 (or earlier).
   * checks/fields{,.desc}:
     + [NT] Recognise Multi-Arch as a known binary field.  (Closes: #617816)
     + [NT] Fixed typo in a tag description.
     + [NT] Removed old-versioned-python-dependency per request of the
       Python team.  The tag was outdated and most instances of it was
       false positives.  Thanks to Piotr Ożarowski and Jakub Wilk for
       the report and clarification.  (Closes: #619487)
     + [NT] Accepted patch from Joachim Breitner to support new Haskell
       package naming scheme.
     + [NT] Added Built-Using as a known binary and udeb field.  This
       field is supported with dpkg 1.16.0.
   * checks/files:
     + [NT] Also check files in /etc/cron.d for dots in filenames.  Thanks
       to Thijs Kinkhorst for the report and patch.  (Closes: #615072)
     + [NT] Applied patch to also detect copies of CKEditor.  Thanks to
       Jeroen Dekkers for the report and the patch.  (Closes: #616505)
     + [NT] Fixed a regression in caused by inconsistent prefixes.
   * checks/huge-usr-share:
     + [NT] Removed assumption that there is always files in usr/share.
   * checks/menu-format:
     + [NT] Fixed an inconsistency in output of file names.  Thanks to
       أحمد المحمودي (Ahmed El-Mahmoudy) for the report.
       (Closes: #618921)
   * checks/menus:
     + [NT] Fixed check for special files that does not need to be
       registered with doc-base (e.g.  README.html).  Thanks to
       Tanguy Ortolo for the report.  (Closes: #617266)
     + [NT] Accepted patch from Joachim Breitner to support new Haskell
       package naming scheme.  (Closes: #616403)
   * checks/patch-systems.desc:
     + [NT] Reduced unneeded-build-dep-on-quilt to a pedantic tag,
       since some people keep the dependency on quilt to ease
       backporting for older releases.
   * data/changelog-file/ubuntu-dists:
     + [NT] Added oneiric as valid Ubuntu distribution.  Thanks to Benjamin
       Drung for the patch.
   * data/common/source-fields:
     + [NT] Added 'package-list' field, which is emitted by dpkg 1.16.0.
   * data/spelling/corrections:
     + [NT] Added more misspellings.
   * t/tests/shared-libs-la-files:
     + [NT] Fixed an issue where files would not be included in the tarball
       due to dpkg-source's exclude patterns.  (Closes: #619287)
   * t/tests/*:
     + [NT] Modified some versioned dependencies that the new dpkg will
       not consider valid from 1.16.0.  (Closes: #619290)
