It was? That seems strange to me because our Debian packaging is less 
"selective" than our RPM.

Less selective in that it wildcards pretty much everything that gets 
installed, unlike the Fedora/RHEL/CentOS.

But perhaps I'm just not remembering this particular incident.

Short of a trial build of Debian packages before the release, coupled 
with some kind of audit of what's in them, and compare that to what's in 
the RPMs?

And for the record, I'm trying not to be the packaging maintainer for so 
many different distributions.

And BTW, at some point we should compare our current Debian/Ubuntu 
package files with Patrick's and get them back in sync again if they 
have diverged.
