Hello Rafael,

Rafael Laboissière [2017-09-17 12:11 +0200]:

Indeed, and I fixed that in git about a month ago already:


(I'll add the Closes # for this bug). I didn't upload a new autopkgtest so far,
as git has changes which need a newer debci. This just got unblocked yesterday,
so I'll do an upload soon.
