   It worked fine with dpkg-dev 1.13.11. I then had to edit debian/ 
control again to "downgrade" lsb-base, too (as you can see further  

   The only glitch I found was that the /etc/init.d/freeradius script  
didn't work anymore, I had to use the older one (pre1).

   It's OK for me if you decided to break compatibility with Debian  
Sarge, but I expect FreeRadius 2.0 to be compatible with at least  
Ubuntu Server LTS (Dapper).
