Package: cdbs
Version: 0.4.30
Severity: normal

CBDS sometimes echos comments from makefiles that are internal to its inner
workings, like this:

# after reverting patches, we don't need update-config because:
#  - the tree is already in a consistent state.
#  - the initialisation of this routine is already in charge of making
#    the tree not only consistent, but also prepared to accept patching.

That's because they are intented in the makefile.  Find them using

grep "$TAB#" /usr/share/cdbs/1/*/*.mk

Please outdent those, because they should not be echoed.

(Does anyone here ever test their code?)
