Re: Packaging task for newbies: Separate pink-pony into program and data

Sure ;).

Oops, my fault. I happened to run apt-get source pink-pony and found it
to download 1.2, so I figured you hadn't uploaded the version yet.
Apparently, I was falsely relying on my mirror to be up-to-date ;(.

I wasn't too sure about that. I tried to incorporate your suggestions
and doing so, removed some of the commands in binary-arch while copying
to binary-indep. I omitted those that explicitly deal with binaries and
those that we do not use in the -data package. If this is not correct,
please let me know.
