Hello all,

As discussed I now fixed @builddeps@ parsing properly. For the unit
test I combined Antonio's and Johannes' suggestions and test a
positive and a negative case:


However, there is a second code path, for packages specifying
"build-needed", or you just give it a .dsc which then needs to be
built. This is handled in this patch:


So in summary I believe this should now be good.
"./run-from-checkout gem2deb_0.18.3.dsc" builds and tests fine.

Thanks, and sorry for the delay!
