If the package is outdated, please report it with the 'Flag outdated package' above.
If there is an issue regarding packaging, please report it here:

As I do not use this package (I use a Docker container for Debian packaging) please tell me whenever a dependency is missing, so that I can move it from a make dependency to a normal dependency.

@max-k I built the package and I have no conflicts with bash-completion.

The file /usr/share/bash-completion/completions/bts is already provided by extra/bash-completion package.

Please remove it from your package to avoid conflicts.

Thanks a lot.

dscverify does not find the keyrings installed by the AUR package debian-archive-keyring. What do we need to put in ~/.devscripts to have things found? Can this be passed to a configure step here to set this up ahead of time? Seems this will work:

Is it somehow actually possible to buidl deb files with this? My problem is that devscripts commans (debuild or dpkg-builpackage) always query package data base for packages, then do not find them and fail hard) Any solution to this?

Anyone looking for a refreshed devscripts package, version 2.16.1 (latest Debian 8), see:

This conflicts with bash-completion, so it is marked as so. This occurs on file:

I use devscripts for pbuilder work, so I had to do it anyway :)
