Package        : exuberant-ctags
Problem type   : recompile of sparc package

The updated exuberant-ctags that was mentioned in DSA-046-1 was
unfortunately compiled incorrectly: the stable chroot we used
turned out to be running unstable instead.

A new package with version 1:3.2.4-0.1.1 has been made that is
correctly compiled.

wget url
        will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.

  Thise file will be moved into stable on its next revision.
