comment Package builds locally but fails in PPA
Yes, lintian produces lots of errors on the package. But this is effectively an unmodified Ubuntu package (only changelog bump) which builds everywhere except for in a PPA, so I'm not convinced that matters.

A good idea, but unfortunately it didn't work. All the tests still pass when pbuilder is run from at without environment.

comment Duplicate (Spotify) Icon in launcher
It's a bug in bamf. See for example: bugs.launchpad.net/unity-2d/+bug/704046. bamf is the "bamf application matching framework" - it's job is to detect whether two windows belong to the same application and thus should be stacked under the same launcher icon or not. There is no reliable way to do this for all applications, so bamf exists specifically to handle corner cases like java and spotify.

comment Duplicate (Spotify) Icon in launcher
This happens or has happened with a variety of software: it is a consequence of the way Unity (and specifically a library called bamf) works.

comment Rhythmbox refuses to maximize correctly
Sounds like bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/rhythmbox/+bug/1176760. I doubt this is really a rhythmbox bug. Much more likely it's a compiz bug (it has had several bugs like this with other applications.)

comment What is the right way to exit the interactive CLI of the command “rev”?
ctrl-z doesn't terminate the process, it backgrounds it. It's still running and you can switch back to it with "fg".
