Re: Packaging Aravis for debian-astro blend

Hi Ole,

slowly but moving on this....

This is the otput of lintian on my last commit for aravis

~/software/aravis$ lintian /home/cache/pbuilder/result/aravis_0.5.10-1_amd64.changes 
W: aravis source: newer-standards-version 4.1.1 (current is 3.9.8)
W: libaravis-0.6: zero-byte-file-in-doc-directory usr/share/doc/libaravis-0.6/changelog.gz
W: gir1.2-aravis-0.6: zero-byte-file-in-doc-directory usr/share/doc/gir1.2-aravis-0.6/changelog.gz
W: libaravis-dev: zero-byte-file-in-doc-directory usr/share/doc/libaravis-dev/changelog.gz
W: aravis-tools: zero-byte-file-in-doc-directory usr/share/doc/aravis-tools/changelog.gz

I think I need help on those ones:
1) aravis source: newer-standards-version 4.1.1 (current is 3.9.8)
     I can't understand which version and of what we are talking about ... I know the problem is in debian/control, but why?

3-4-5-6) zero-byte-file-in-doc-directory usr/share/doc/libaravis-dev/changelog.gz
     It's unclear to me how to avoid the changelog.gz creation (as it is empty)

I've tried to remove the ChangeLog file using quilt, but as ChangeLog is empty quilt doesn't see any difference before and after the remove.
How can I patch the removing of an empty file?

Done, but I have a new question.... :)
The author released a new version of the software 0.5.11: in order to update the repo I have to repeat the initial steps with the new tar?
$ git checkout -b upstream
$ tar xf ../aravis_0.5.11.orig.tar.gz --strip-components=1
$ git add --all
$ git commit -m "Updating upstream version 0.5" 
$ git tag upstream/0.5.11
$ pristine-tar commit ../aravis_0.5.11.orig.tar.gz

I'm still working on the license inventory... :(

Nice day to all,
