  1. Bug#458386: Install scripts require dpkg (>= 1.10.24) for bzip2 compressed debs

    Package: general
    Severity: normal

    While attempting to upload a new package with bzip2 compressed dpkg, I
    got a reject mail with,

    ----------------
    Rejected: rails_2.0.1-1_all.deb: uses bzip2 compression, but doesn't
    Pre-Depend on dpkg (>= 1.10.24)
    ----------------

    This pre-depend is only needed for Sarge. Etch does not need this
    check. Please remove this check.
