Package: python-debian
Version: 0.1.33

Packages{.gz,.bz2} and I am not sure how it should be parsed.
Currently, the whitespace is being treated as a paragraph delimiter,
in python-debian, but not by apt-get, etc.

See, for example, line 3780 of


Should this whitespace be parsed as a paragraph delimiter?
