Hello Thomas, or anyone else affected,

Accepted dpkg into lucid-proposed. The package will build now and be
available at http://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/dpkg/
in a few hours, and then in the -proposed repository.

Please help us by testing this new package.  See
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation how to
enable and use -proposed.  Your feedback will aid us getting this update
out to other Ubuntu users.

If this package fixes the bug for you, please change the bug tag from
verification-needed to verification-done.  If it does not, change the
tag to verification-failed.  In either case, details of your testing
will help us make a better decision.

Further information regarding the verification process can be found at
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/QATeam/PerformingSRUVerification .  Thank you in
