Bug Description

Binary package hint: dv4l

This bug was sent manually, but the text was written to a template, as I have several similar bugs to report today. Please see my recent bug reports for a list, or bug #391165 for the root cause.

Version 1.0-2 of dv4l has a backslash at the end of the line(s) in the "Build-Dependencies" section of debian/control. There shouldn't be a backslash in the area(s) marked by ***asterisks***:

Build-Depends: cdbs, debhelper (>= 7), autotools-dev, dpatch, ***\***
 libraw1394-dev, libiec61883-dev, libdv-dev

This is currently allowed because of bug #391165. However, dv4l will fail to build once that bug has been fixed. This bug can be fixed by removing all end-of-line backslashes.

Please simply remove the backslash (otherwise that line becomes longer than 80 characters) and set "Ubuntu Developers <email address hidden>" as Maintainer.
