AFAIK you can give only one version as an argument, giving two (or more)
gives you an error.  I added 5.0.2-1 (the oldest version) to the report.

I left all your report for José, John, the pkg-bacula-devel@ and
bacula-user@ mailing lists :-)

Thus we clearly need an upgrade path from lenny, even if we are a bit
late given squeeze is out for two months now.

Thank you very much for the script.

Given that this is an upstream bug (bacula-user@ mailing list cc:ed for
comments), it would probably be a good thing to check with upstream if
they have already provided a solution.  If this is not the case and
there is interest for it outside Debian, I would be more than happy to
push your script to upstream.

For the latter to happen, however, your script should share the same
Bacula upstream license, do you agree with that?


Or, if not pushed upstream and included in Debian-only, the license
should be the same as the one José and John chose for their packaging
work.  Since I could not find any note about it, José, John, could you
enlighten us, please?
Thx, bye,
Gismo / Luca
