Are you suggesting breezy is an external repository? It isn't...

Personally, I'm not interested in using a static system. I want the latest
stuff (and debian sid wasn't it...). So as soon as Hoary got stable I moved
In any case, he's _not_ getting what he asked for. He asked for kdelibs-dev
and got a broken package. "Missing final newline" doesn't suggest that
there's an odd, and unworkable, mix of repositories. It says the package
wasn't built right.
As a general rule of thumb, if he's just moved from Hoary to Breezy, he
shouldn't be doing an upgrade - I'd agree with that. That first upgrade
definitely needs to be a "dist-upgrade".
