Bug#475108: Missing file: debian/lib/python/debian_linux/__init__.py
 
Package: linux-kbuild-2.6
Version: 2.6.24-1
Severity: normal

The linux-kbuild-2.6 package (at least for version 2.6.24-1) is
missing the file debian/lib/python/debian_linux/__init__.py.
Without this file, modifying debian/control (such as for a local
version of the package, as I have done) and running pdebuild gives:

dpkg-buildpackage: source package is linux-kbuild-2.6
dpkg-buildpackage: source version is 2.6.24-1~zg1
dpkg-buildpackage: source changed by John Zaitseff <J.Zaitseff@zap.org.au>
dpkg-buildpackage: source version without epoch 2.6.24-1~zg1

Creating an empty __init__.py file using "touch" fixes this problem,
as far as I can see (I'm not a Python guru---yet!).

It may be that empty files are not correctly handled by whatever
creates the Debian diff, so a file with a newline in it may be
necessary... but I am not at all sure of this.

Yours truly,

John Zaitseff

Sorry for the sloow response. This seems to have been fixed (by
adding the __init__.py file) when linux-kbuild became linux-tools.

Thanks for your help and patience,
Jonathan
