Surely package descriptions should be 8-bit only, especially for something
as trivial as quotation marks?

Hi,
would it be better if there were single quotation marks (1 byte)?
The Debian Policy, section 5.1 dictates that control files
should be UTF8 encoded.

Chris

Thanks for pointing that out; I had assumed that they were supposed to
be Latin-1 or something like that.

Even so, using Unicode quote marks seems to be overkill, when an ASCII
quote mark (0x22) would do just as well.

What do other packages do?

I probably wouldn't have even noticed it, except for

http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=679386

which breaks locale-setting, and therefore Unicode text.

Other packages start adopting Debian Policy about control file eventually.
I don't know if they use typographic quotation marks but I will change
those to single quotation marks. The file encoding will remain the same as
is.

Chris.

Date: Tue, 11 Sep 2012 10:32:53 +0300
Hello,
of course it helps. The problem seems to be the libmad library.
Can you please try madplay and if the same thing happens then surely
the problem is libmad. I don't have an armhs machine to make some
tests.

I don't know if you have noticed an abnormal behavior when trying to use
the -b option but occasionally mpg321 crashes, stops playing the song,
plays the song
without syncing with the second process that outputs the song or the
reverse. Never starts
playing an mp3 file or crashes when someone tries to play a file that is
not an mp3. All those situations
does not happen when you are not using -b option. I am trying to solve the
problem but I haven't figured
where the fault is. So I prefer to silently as you say ignore the -b
option and preserve the package
in the previous state, so to provide a stable version that won't make
problems to users or other packages
that try or might use this new feature.

I will fix that and re-upload the package.

I will fix that also.
