# DON'T DO THIS. If you do, the resulting executable will not be able to
# read some PostScript files containing JPEG data, because Adobe chose to

In summary, the packages look good -- but the setup.hints need some

md5sum, and the source package.)
Erm, you realize that the setup.hints are supposed to be *separate*
files, right? one for each package... eventually, on sourceware we'll
binary tarball for -x11- version
"binary" tarball for -base- package
Where (1) contains the fragment that applies to the non-X ghostscript

Now, it doesn't really matter HOW that information is stored inside the
-src archive (at least, presently). If you want it to be all in one
file, that's fine -- but you'll need to split it up into separate files
*on your website* before whoever uploads it to sourceware will touch it. <g>

For ghostscript-x and ghostscript-base, you don't need a 'curr:' line --
there is no version 6.51-4 of those packages. And, since you've
explicitly marked 'test:' versions, upset will NOT autoassign them to
Also, you need to add a line to the ghostscript-x11 and ghostscript-base
