Hi Jelmer,

I have just pushed up a branch to address both this bug and bug #528254

Let me know if I need to do anything else.

Hi Paul,

Can you perhaps propose the fix as a change to the lp:bzr branch rather than against the lp:ubuntu/bzr branch?

The current branch would mean the change only ends up in Ubuntu, rather than in the upstream Bazaar branch, which not only the Ubuntu package but also the packages in the other distributions derive from.

Hi Jelmer,

Yes, I will do that. I think I did it, and the link is below, but I am not sure if I have proposed the merge correctly. When you have time would you be able to look and confirm if I have done it correctly please?


Thanks for your time.
Paul Stewart
