dpkg: out of sync with Debian by more than a year
Closed, DuplicatePublic


dpkg in byzantium is version 1.19.7pureos1, missing updates in Debian for more than a year.

The only deviation from Debian is the arch-independent file /usr/share/perl5/Dpkg/Vendor/ which (thanks to the class-based design of vendoring in Dpkg perl modules) can be provided by a different package than dpkg itself, to ease maintenance.

The Vendor module can be more reliably be decoupled from the dpkg package if is merged.

Please either...
a) update the package, or
b) tell me if ok that I update the package (as prepared at, or
c) tell if you agree that we better ship the Module in another package (preferably with my proposed updates applied).
