Correct. I don't like the capital letter either, and was considering
changing everything to all lowercase (as I am the current upstream
author), but dropped the idea for exactly that reason.
- You should not touch the Makefile directly (since it could be re-generated),
but patch the Makefile.in instead preferably via quilt, see wiki.debian.org.
Hm. I didn't touch the Makefile. The ...diff shows the complete
Makefile, probably *because* it was generated. I thought this was
normal, because I'm using plain cdbs automake rules, and this is what I
get. What am I missing?
- Eventually you can give 3.0 (quilt) a try (i.e. it should be easier for you)
Will give it a try (as soon as I have to patch the upstream).
- You want to get rid of .hg* in the tarball and .deps in the clean target
- If you maintain your packaging in a version control system, you could also
add Vcs-* fields as described in debian policy.
- Binary package procserv could also Suggests: telnet
Good points. I will address all of those and re-upload when I'm done and
have an idea about the Makefile/...diff issue.
