dgit import: Right error message for missing files in ..
Close examination of this code path reveals that: * The error is generated only if $there contains no slash. * This can only occur if $dscfn matches the first regexp, ie $dscfn is [./]../X in which case $there becomes X * So in this situation, $there is simply the dsc filename which is supposed to be in .. * What we should be testing is ../$f but that is $here which is what are trying to create and which we statted earlier and got ENOENT for. So this occurs when the dsc is in .. and a file it refers to is missing. Signed-off-by: Ian Jackson <>
