Re: How to recover the debian/ dir
Adam is exactly right. All I have now are the old *.deb and new, modified src or
binaries. I want the old debian dir, not only the control file which can be
extracted from the .deb, but the others, like rule, docs, dirs, ....
I certainly appreciate everyone's help so far.
More guidance still needed.
