debian has the fix already applied, so its best to just sync the

** Description changed:

+ Archive admins: Please sync dictionary-el_1.8.7-7 from debian/unstable.
+ Changes since last sync: 
+  dictionary-el (1.8.7-7) unstable; urgency=low
+  .
+    * Fix typo in previous changelog entry.
+  dictionary-el (1.8.7-6) unstable; urgency=low
+  .
+    * debian/emacsen-install: per Michael W. Olsen, make absolute rather
+      than relative symlinks to .el files to accommodate non-standard
+      filesystem setups in which /usr/share/$FLAVOR is a symlink.
+      (Closes: #431649.)
+    * debian/copyright: correctly mark license as GPL 2 *or later*, but
+      specifically refer users to /usr/share/common-licenses/GPL-2 anyway.
+  dictionary-el (1.8.7-5) unstable; urgency=low
+  .
+    * dictionary.el: per Kevin Ryde, mark the connection as safe to kill
+      without bugging the user.  (Closes: #417533.)
+    * debian/control: tweak dependencies slightly in preparation for
+      emacs22.
  The dictionary-el 1.8.7-4 package does not seem to be installing
  correctly on my system, at least with emacs-snapshot.
  The following errors are given.  I also notice that it creates a bogus
  "*.el" symlink in /usr/share/emacs-snapshot/site-lisp/dictionary-el/
  that points to "../../../emacs/site-lisp/dictionary-el/*.el".
