Bug Description

Glade 3.18 likes to insert a comment as the second line that upsets Onboard's package fails to build due to this, unless we remember to remove the offending line after every change. Could you have a look?

$ cd onboard
$ ./ build

This fixes it for me:

It just bit me again:
Could someone have a look at this, please? It's not hard to fix at all.

I added marmuta's solution provided in the bug description as a patch to the python-distutils-extra package currently shipping in the development version of xenial.

Afterwards, I tested it against revision 2020 of the trunk branch of Onboard. Onboard was build without error while using the patched version of python-distutils-extra. However, I don't know if the patch might break other things.

I will add the relevant files to this bug thread.

Thanks in advance to anybody looking at this.
