Consider dropping country-specific mirror. Remove .de.

This package seems to require the po4a package in order to build. I'm getting this error when building:

checking for po4a... no
configure: error: Need po4a program
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().

Installing po4a fixed the issue for me.

I’m unable to build this package:

po4a --previous --srcdir . --destdir . --no-backups --porefs noline,wrap --msgmerge-opt=--add-location=file --package-name sensible-utils  ./po4a/po4a.cfg
po4a::po: Invalid value for option 'porefs' ('noline,wrap' is not one of 'full', 'counter', 'noline', 'file' or 'never')

Tests being executed during build require core/ed to be installed.

I concur, had to install ed to pass this test:

FAIL: test/ed-as-sensible-editor

Not sure why that's a test, I don't know anyone who uses ed.

Just a note for others, since I just fetched the tar.gz just do find out: These scripts basically check environment varialbes like $EDITOR and $PAGER and also have a couple of defaults if these are not set.
