Re: debian source format
It's a bad idea to make a debian package out of more than one
upstream package. Where these exist, they should be broken up into
separate packages. On the other hand, it's fine to generate more
than one binary package from a single source package.
How about a case where docs are scattered across a bunch of otherwise
irrelevant files? [e.g. in J, I still have a problem where the
supplied man page refers to some tutorial files which are only
included in a previous version of the source... I have to remember to
update for that problem, soon...]
P.S. Note: distribution changed from debian-user to debian-devel. I
think my comment is a bit too nit-picky for general distribution.
