[Build-common-hackers] Bug#537240: cdbs: should create versioned debhelper dependency

Package: cdbs
Version: 0.4.58
Severity: wishlist

cdbs creates an unversioned debhelper dependency, which triggers a
lintian warning on the generated package. Additionally, when
control.in already has debhelper (>>5) listed, a second, unversioned
dependency is added by cdbs.

cdbs should either generate a versioned debhelper dependency itself,
or it should notice that there is already a debhelper dependency in
control.in and refrain from adding its own.
