Hi Andreas,

Sorry for sending to your personal address but I flooded pkg-mc-devel today.

If you have some time could you please have a look at updated repository and 
perhaps consider sponsoring an updated package?

As usual, some issues was overlooked but hopefully promptly addressed.


Here is the list of changes:

mc (3:4.8.1-2) unstable; urgency=low

  * Build-Depends are updated: 'bison' moved to build-deps;
    architecture wildcard replaced silly "type-handling | not+linux-gnu"
    (Closes: #587875 N:"Please remove type-handling dependency")
  * new patch to increase maximum file size for mcedit to 128 MiB
    (Closes: #369565 W:"mcedit: wishing a bigger file size limit")
    Thanks to Daniele Giacomini.
  * new patch to disable "Return does autoindent" by default in mcedit
    (Closes: #570502 N:"mcedit: adding extra spaces when pasting a text
