Thanks for the information - I probably have to update my QA settings to
recieve uscan information.
I would like to take this occurance to discuss the policy of updating
packages in cases like this:
Changes in Version 1.0-1
o "Escaping RGBland" paper is now published Computational
Statistics & Data Analysis as doi:10.1016/j.csda.2008.11.033.
Citation and references updated accordingly.
I wonder whether this change of documentation in a package rectifies
spending Debian resources on an update. It is not that I would like
to refuse working on this. I just wonder whether we should do an
upgrade in *any* case or just do it with a grain of salt after evaluating
the sense of an upgrade.
Note: I would like discuss this as a matter of principle, the updated package
itself was just uploaded because it deserved some other changes.
