I totally misunderstood your comments now after toying around a bit I'm
able to get it working. But I still see following problem.

  set we will end up getting to automake dependency. As an example I did


  after regenerating control file I've 2 automake (>= 1.14) in
  Build-Depends field. I also noted the code remains same as previous
  with slight modification but previously this duplication was not
  happening but now its happening and I'm not sure why :(

  I also noted if I remove , in above expression cdbs generates
  dependency as automake1.14 but I guess this name is no longer valid
  and should be handled appropriately

- Normally when we provide new feature in CDBS and user uses it we bump
  the cdbs version to be >= new_version~ where new_version is the
  version where feature was introduced. This needs to be done for this

I'm planning to push the branch where I've applied your patch so we can
collaborate and get this fixed afterwards Jonas and other CDBS hackers
can check this and merge it with master. Are you okay with this?

Warm Regards
