dpkg source package in Ubuntu


dpkg ( oneiric; urgency=low

  * Cherry pick b8d4668 and 967a45f from pu/multiarch so that cross-grading a
    package doesn't result in dpkg believing the package has been disappeared
    on the next call.  Thanks to Raphaƫl Hertzog <email address hidden> for
    the quick fix!  (LP: #863675)
