Arthur,

Thanks for this.

I am unclear what change in base-files has caused this.

Can you check if base-files 11.1+devuan2[1] also causes this build failure?

Looking at the mkdebian script it appears to be line 126[1]

You should be able to work around it by setting KDEB_CHANGELOG_DIST. Can you
verify that works?

If the codename returned by lsb_release -cs is to be a single value, I wonder if
it should be ceres or daedalus.

Mark

That is good to know.

We will consider if we want to change the codename that lsb_release returns, but
it seems right as ceres/daedalus.

I have just been experimenting and deb-changelog(5) indicated that the
distributions field can be a space separated list.

If you change /etc/os-release to contain

 VERSION_CODENAME="daedalus ceres"

Does that enable mkdebian to run successfully without setting
KDEB_CHANGELOG_DIST manually?

Thanks

Yes,

VERSION_CODENAME="daedalus ceres"

worked thanks.
