I made 2 README.Debian. One for raster3d and other for raster3d-doc.
They are basically explaining that raster3d-doc could be useful and that
the user will have to install raster3d in order to use some examples
from raster3d-doc. It also says that he might need ghostscript and
imagemagick to run some examples.
BTW, a README.Debian on raster3d and another one on raster3d-doc. Is it
It works OK with imagemagick present on testing and unstable (they are
the same version). I put it as recommends, since the main program from
Raster3D doesn't needs imagemagick.
The same for ghostscript. A recommends to gs-gpl (since gs is a dummy
package to gs-gpl). GS is only needed by two scripts, that aren't the
"core" of Raster3D.
raster3-doc also has a recommends on raster3d since to run the examples,
the user will need the programs from raster3d package.
I have patched upstream BUGS file, to (I think) the really important parts.

Yes. I was in doubt about that.
Asked on #debian-devel and #debian-mentors. Nobody answered... :-/
Then I download some packages source that were split in <package> and
They were installing all the documents under /usr/share/doc/package-doc
Because that I installed on the same way. I don't remember the name of
the packages, but I saw it on two packages.

I created a link index.html -> raster3d.html, so people that are already
familiar with the webpages could open raster3d.html and new people will
see the index.html. I think this could help.
Well... I think that you are already getting angry with me! :-)
I hope that there is no more mistake on the packages.
Packages and stuff here:
And, finally, could you upload a new revision of the gff2aplot package?
I corrected some small things on the package (nothing important).
Thank you very much Andreas!
