Bug Description

As debhelper 10.3 (https://github.com/Debian/debhelper/commit/f771a9a62802733fea6801dacde3badee13ef8c0) added support for the meson build system, it would be great to have a newer version of debhelper in xenial-backports than 10.2.2.

As per discussion with Laney, merges:

Artful: https://sigma.unit193.net/source/debhelper_11ubuntu0.1~ubuntu17.10.dsc
Xenial: https://sigma.unit193.net/source/debhelper_11ubuntu0.1~ubuntu16.04.dsc

This was a merge from stable-backports as that contains the reverted changes for R³. The version '11ubuntu0' such that it fulfills the requirement of 'debhelper (>= 11)'

What can I do to see debhelper 10.3+ in xenian-backports?

Never noticed there was a reply, nevertheless, artful is dead now so while that's now a moot point, I can't seem to reproduce that error, at least when I run that URL as an argument for dget.
