This may be a bug in the dsc file parser, you currently must not
have empty lines in the dsc file.
I'll check the specification.

(I already fixed the error message, this is not about a "spec file".)


Thanks very much, that fixed that error. Unfortunately, I'm getting another,

dpkg-buildpackage: error: unable to determine source changed by
dpkg-buildpackage: source package sketch-backend
dpkg-buildpackage: source version 1.4.0

It would be super-awesome if obs could generate debian packaging info,
or maybe use existing tools (maybe alien).

thanks much,
