[Build-common-hackers] Bug#359887: cdbs: Make CDBS depend on latest version when building from control.in

Package: cdbs
Version: 0.4.37
Severity: important
Tags: patch


I use DEB_AUTO_UPDATE_DEBIAN_CONTROL in my scripts to build my control
file.  I wanted to use the feature in the latest CDBS to automagically
create a -dbg package, but CDBS gives the build-dep as a very old

I think there is an argument for having this updated on each version;
if I build with a version of CDBS I want to be sure that any of the
autobuilders are using at least that version.
