If the package is outdated, please report it with the 'Flag outdated package' above.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.

Seems this package is missing a po4a dep and a PATH=$PATH:/usr/bin/vendor_perl/

Is anyone else getting:

cp debsnap.tmp debsnap
cp: cannot stat ‘debsnap.tmp’: No such file or directory

Added another Makefile patch to fix "pod" errors:

@lainme : To resolv this error, the line '=pod' must be removed from pod files.

Try this updated Makefile.patch :
(Beware : you must replace spaces with tabs at the beginning of the lines)

The previous error donesn't appear for devscripts 2.10.68. It happens for 2.10.69 or higher

lainme commented on 2012-07-04 03:36

Does anyone have this problem?

podchecker fr/
*** ERROR: Spurious =pod command at line 15 in file fr/
fr/ has 1 pod syntax error.

Could you update the xsl-stylesheets version to 1.77.1 in Makefile.patch ?
