dhelp (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Please sync dhelp 0.5.25 (universe) from Debian unstable (main)

    New Debian version includes complete rewrite of dhelp_parse rendering Ubuntu patch no longer applicable
    New Debian version contains many additional bug fixes
    New Debian version compiles & installs in hardy

Additional Debian changelog:

dhelp (0.5.25) unstable; urgency=low

  * Maintainer change.
  * Rewrite dhelp_parse in Ruby. This fixes some bugs and avoids many problems
    (Closes: #21678, #268487, #62454, #312950, #442943, #444429, #193428).
  * This release should be a drop-in replacement for the C version, and still
    uses the same database and internal format.
  * It also adds a Ruby library, to allow other developers to write other
    programs that read and/or update the dhelp databases.
  * Use "http://localhost" for CGI script URLs (Closes: #114588).
  * Removed misleading dot from example (Closes: #381804).
  * Uses sensible-browser instead of having its own configuration system
    (Closes: #146002, #162518, #381805, #217162, #430590).
  * Clean up the HTML a bit (Closes: #438973, #134567, #115306).
  * Remove references to obsolete script dh_dhelp (Closes: #369459).
  * Raise title limit from 49 to 100 characters (Closes: #102393).
  * Depend on doc-base, to make sure packages have their documentation
    available for dhelp (Closes: #314733, #368035).
  * Wait a couple of seconds before exiting, after a fatal error, to make sure
    the user can read the error message (Closes: #35097).
  * Make documentation index files world-readable, regardless of current umask
    (Closes: #158792, #430474, #430505).
  * Remove obsolete script, and references to it
    (Closes: #364245).
  * Remove "dangerous" environment variables from dsearch, to avoid taint
    problems (Closes: #389944).
  * Strip blanks from .dhelp field values (Closes: #133218).

The package synced from Debian FTBFS [1]. This debdiff should fix this bug. Just to mention that all previous Ubuntu changes are no longer needed, so it should still be a sync.

Could you please adjust your debdiff using 0.5.25ubuntu1 as version? You should also insert LP: #161832 somewhere in your changelog. Please, resubscribe ubuntu-universe-sponsors when you will have your debdiff ready. Thank you.
