This is a real problem, thanks for spotting it. It seems that only
jed-common.README.Debian is installed as /usr/share/doc/jed/README.Debian
and that README.Debian is never installed. This happens because
/usr/share/doc/jed is a symlink to /usr/share/doc/jed-common. Jürgen,
could you please look at this.
Since jed is the first binary package described in debian/control, the
README.Debian file is installed as /usr/share/doc/jed/README.Debian. The
jed-common.README.Debian is installed by dh_installdocs as
/usr/share/doc/jed-common/README.Debian which, due to the symlink is the
same as /usr/share/doc/jed/README.Debian.
At any rate, we must update the text in README.Debian, which refers to
version 0.99-17 of JED.

Yes, this is what I thought. There is now the gdbmrecent package that
can provide the same functionality of jedstate. Unfortunately,
gdbmrecent it is not a drop-in replacement for jedstate. With the upload
of 0.99.18 to experimental, users of jedstate (me included) will have
We might provide a script to convert the ~/.jedstate.db file into the
~/.recent_db file of gdbmrecent. That should not be too complicated, since
both have the same type:
$ file ~/.recent_db ~/.jedstate.db
/home/rafael/.recent_db: GNU dbm 1.x or ndbm database, little endian
/home/rafael/.jedstate.db: GNU dbm 1.x or ndbm database, little endian
