For example, we don't append "-python" to every python program (take GRAMPS or apt-listchanges). We don't need to clutter package's names with programming language :) > 2) Do not strip the .orig.tar.gz file unless strictly necessary. In this > case I can not see that it is necessary.

You're right, it's best to get a new release from upstream without GPL crufts but Marc Prud'hommeaux (upstream author) answer to me : " Unfortunately, I'm not going to have any time to make a new SQLLine release in the near future correcting the issue of the license file. " So for now, I'll revert to pristine upstream tarball and make a note in debian/README.source. Is it ok for you ?  http://www.debian.org/doc/packaging-manuals/java-policy/x86.html -- Damien Raude-Morvan / www.drazzib.com
