Ah I see, thanks for clarifying. Would be good to have something
like "unneeded because override_dh_auto_install is gone and TCT no
longer exists" next to it.

Ok, I'm fine with it. :)

Yeah, the problem is that your branch doesn't contain the actual
4.1.2 release/source.

I'm just trying to solve this (sadly there are quite some merge
issues between the different branches).

I'm aware, but I'm building packages based on what's in the VCS and
current state isn't buildable.

Yeah, let's wait for having 4.1.2 in the archive, then we can make
4.1.3 a clean release.

I'll reply again once I've news regarding the git situation.
