In my slviewer packages (http://www.tbble.net/debian/slviewer and
http://www.tbble.net/debian/slviewer-artwork) the slviewer debian/rules
file contains a script to check all the .cpp and .hpp files for the
appropriate license header.

I'm pretty sure there's an upstream bug report about this too, I dunno
what kind of state it's in though. I haven't looked at their public
issue tracker for months.

I haven't actually looked at Robin's packages myself, but I had kind of
hoped he'd* dragged that sort of stuff across from my packaging into

If not, it should be easy to port, it fairly simply calls a perl script
in the debian directory.

Of course Pacman didn't influence us as kids. If it did,
we'd be running around in darkened rooms, popping pills and
listening to repetitive music.
