Package: dia-common
Version: 0.94.0-7sarge3
Tags: sarge

First, debsums reported a checksum mismatch in dia-common on
/usr/share/doc/dia-common/changelog.gz . Indeed, the end of the file looks like
garbage from a corrupted or incomplete gzip stream. I tried downloading another
copy of dia-common_0.94.0-7sarge3_all.deb manually, verified its md5sum against
the one stated in the distribution file (which matched, so it's not a download
problem), and indeed it looks like the archive is incomplete:

% md5sum dia-common_0.94.0-7sarge3_all.deb
00c9a9808842eaef293bdd0d15b40105  dia-common_0.94.0-7sarge3_all.deb
% grep -B 2 00c9a9808842eaef293bdd0d15b40105 /var/lib/dpkg/available
Filename: pool/main/d/dia/dia-common_0.94.0-7sarge3_all.deb
Size: 2149752
MD5sum: 00c9a9808842eaef293bdd0d15b40105
% ar x dia-common_0.94.0-7sarge3_all.deb
% tar -zxf dia-common_0.94.0-7sarge3_all.deb

gzip: stdin: not in gzip format
tar: Child returned status 1
tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors

I guess the package should be built and uploaded again...
