fails to build on all platforms other than 386

Bug #262665 reported by Elliot Murphy on 2008-08-29
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
protobuf (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

This is because the source package has

Build-Depends-Indep: python-support (>= 0.6)

and it apparently should be listed under Build-Depends: instead. I am attaching a patch.

It looks good and works for me. I'd just change a few bits in debian/changelog:
 - change to (LP: #262665) to get the bug automatically closed on upload
 - not mention the Maintainer change, we have to do it anyway for every upload where we differ from Debian

Thanks for your work on this.

I'm unsubscribing the Sponsors' Team for now.

Thanks for the advice Daniel, sorry for the delay in responding.

I've reformatted the reference to the launchpad bug, and not mentioned the maintainer change. Updated debdiff is attached. resubscribing the Sponsors team.

It's XSBC-Original-Maintainer instead of Debian-Maintainer (best use the 'update-maintainer' script in ubuntu-dev-tools) - Rationale: I quickly fixed it myself. Apart from that good work. Uploaded.
