If we really use that scheme, there would be no need to declare an extra header -- the location of the file can be calculated by the package manager using the name of the package and the version number. I personally find useless to have a single screenshot: what can you really understand about the look and feel of a program by looking at a single screenshot? Far better would be to have some sort of "gallery" associated to the package, described by a special file, something like --- http://screenshots.debian.net/package/version.xml --- <gallery> <screenshot> <filename>main.png</filename> <description>Package's main window</description> </screenshot> <screenshot> <filename>preferences.png</filename> <description>Package's preferences window</description> </screenshot> </gallery> --- eof --- Then synaptic or whatever other GUI frontend can download that file and show the screenshots as a gallery, giving also a brief description of the picture. -- KiyuKo <eof AT kiyuko DOT org> Resistance is futile, you will be garbage collected.
