Bug Description

Equivs cannot currently make packages with the Multi-Arch header. This trival patch fixes that.

This header is important and should definitely be included in equivs-generated packaged when desired. It is necessary in order to, for example, make fake library packages for cross-toolchains where the toolchain libraries are not fully multiarched (which is the state for current Ubuntu cross-toolchains).

The patch also sets the Multi-Arch: foreign header for this package so that cross-architecture dependency resolution will work correctly.

Patch updated upstream to include docs and remove the Multi-Arch: header for the package itself as a) it's covered in another bug ( and b) it was in the wrong stanza.

Isn't this bug already fixed in Ubuntu 16.04 LTS (Xenial) and later (equivs 2.0.9+nmu1)?

This is fixed with 2.0.9+nmu1 and hence fixed in Ubuntu since 2015-10-26 and xenial as Mantas wrote. Hence closing.
