Package: dctrl-tools
Version: 2.17
Severity: important

The experimental version of grep-dctrl only generates empty output on my
systems, even for the most basic queries (like grep-available vrms).

Reverting to the version in unstable works again. I file this as important
(instead of a higher priority) because the package isn't meant for release
at this time, but it does break other programs, like dpigs and

If anything else is needed, please let me know.
