Hi, Paul.

Thanks for the observation.

Yes, I saw:

 cacti (0.8.8f+ds1-2) unstable; urgency=medium
   * Update loadavg_multi_locale_friendly.patch (Closes: #793401)
   * Add missing manual.css (Closes: #783416)
   * Fix d/rules override_dh_*configure target (Wasn't ever run,
     althought that wasn't too bad until now)

I guess if there is a patch, then it contains the changes we talked
about in this thread :-) I tried to see the content of this patch but I
didn't found a way to do it. Just for curiosity, can you tell me where I
can see the contents of the patches that apply to each package (based on
the open/closed issues)?

I appreciate your dedication and time.

Best regards,
