I think it’d be better if the Vcs-* fields pointed to the Debian
location. Can you change that please?

I don’t mind you using the torproject.org repository as a mirror, but
the main repository should be the one in pkg-go. Therefore, I don’t
think a comment about the other repository is necessary, but it also
can’t hurt.

This is strange. We’ve had that before, and the last time I created that
file as “stapelberg” with permissions 664. Now, I found one owned by
tonnerre-guest with permissions 644. I assume one of our scripts doesn’t
preserve the file, but I don’t know which one it is/where the problem
happens. The part of /home/groups/pkg-go/meta/setup-repository which
deals with the mrconfig file looks sane to me.

I added an additional chmod to the script, so maybe that works around
the problem. Any hints on debugging this and fixing it properly are

Best regards,
