Are you > sure you need that? .THIS deleted (yes, it was a backup file) In my flow diagram, kstarsrc-previously-exists is used to check if some preconfigured /etc/kde4/kstarsrc exists, and if it exists, leave it as it is. It is needed because at deconfiguring, in a future postrm script, it can be checked if file is to be deleted (if created by any kstars-data-extra-* package) or kept. Moreover, since there will be a bunch of kstars-data-extra-* packages, this value will help avoid reconfigure over reconfigure ,if more than one of them is installed. > - debian/control: It would be nice to synchronize your package description > with that of kstars-data.

Again, take a look at short changed to: Tycho2 star catalog for centralized install of KStars long changed, too, to have it start more or less like the kstars-data package, but ephasizing the differences. > the kstars-data package. - debian/copyright: It would be nice if it were > formatted according to DEP-5, see http://dep.debian.net/deps/dep5/.

BTW: Is there some http://edu.kde.org/kstars/downloads/knewstuff.xml says it is GPL (no version). That is the official page for automated downloads from the program. > source-file for this .dat-file?

I still do not know how this file has been compiled. I think it's some internal method of the KStars team. It's immediate source is not published AFAIK and its non-immediate source is the Tycho-2 catalog itself. You can find it at http://cdsarc.u-strasbg.fr/cgi-bin/myqcat3?I/259/ but I do not know (yet) how was it cooked and then compiled to get the deepstars.dat file. Once I know, I will try to get this in shape with stardata-common system. > - debian/docs: README.source doesn't quite sound like a filename that > should go in the binary packages.
