Hi Adam,

Thanks for accepting this bugfix and your quick reply.

The "Closes:" is obvious and I was about to do it, though I'm a bit
surprised by the version number scheme. I was expecting that you asked
me to upload 1.4.2+git20120612-9+squeeze1 (which would have also work as
it would be lower than 1.4.2+git20120612-9.1, I checked with dpkg
--compare-versions). Could you explain why using ~deb7u1 in this case,
just for my knowledge?

I have built the package in a clean chroot (my usual wheezy cowbuilder
machine), and uploaded the result here:


I have attached the debdiff. Can I upload this now?
