Hey @ido. I tried updating PKGBUILD in Github. Could you merge changes? It's my first time using Github. I guess I got it right.

Does anyone want to take on co-maintainership to help improve this package and update it?

Looks like dpkg-parsechangelog requires perl-date-parse.

dpkg-gencontrol has an optional dependency on the File::FcntlLock perl module. If that perl module is not installed, you'll get an error message like this:
"dpkg-gencontrol: warning: File::FcntlLock not available; using flock which is not NFS-safe"

AUR has this perl package available as perl-file-fcntllock. Perhaps it should be made an optional dependency of dpkg.

Thx and regards
