sgml-base (1.29) unstable; urgency=medium
* QA upload.
* Mark sgml-base m-a:foreign, because dpkg is m-a:foreign already and the
maintainer scripts do not induce architecture dependency.

* Non-maintainer upload.
* update-catalog --update-super ignores catalogs referencing non-existent
files. (Closes: #676717) Thanks to Jakub Wilk for contributing the parser.
* Remove warning about rebuilding packages as it may confuse users.
* Quieten update-catalog during trigger and postinst, to avoid warnings for
packages in "rc" state.
* Pre-Depend on dpkg >= 1.16.4 (Closes: #678902). Removed dependency on
dpkg >= 1.14.18. sgml-base highlights a bug in dpkg's trigger processing.
