LAM packaging [update]
I've just redone the lam-61 package using debhelper.
Problem: the source ships with a large tar file of patches.
Solution: prepatch the source with the untarred patches. Is this OK?
Problem: this package has an overlapping man page with mpich
[another implementation of message passing for clusters].
The two man pages are widely different: is it OK just to make
lam conflict with mpich if this is already installed.
Where do you set up the conflicts header.
Problem: As well as the man pages, there are also various large
documents in PS format: one is main docs, one is various papers
regarding performance etx. The docs have been gzipped.
Ignore these and refer people back to the upstream site for more
extensive documentation ?
Place these in their own subdirectory under /usr/doc/lam/postscript?
Untar/zip them and convert the PS to ASCIi ??
