Hi jathan,

Thanks! Just as a two helpful pointers here; first, I think the diff was
so short to not justify an attachment (ie. it could have been copy-pasted
into the mail). Secondly, the default output from the diff command is not
very readable - try using the "unified" setting, eg. diff -U file-a file-b.

Hm, I fear you have some fundamental confusion about how "dh" works here.

Assuming that dh_fixperms is the route to the solution, were you trying
to call dh_fixperms with particular settings? If so, you probably want
to grep for "overrides" eg. something like adding a override_dh_fixperms
