Integration of debian/ scripts in packages


A general observation of Unix programs in general - a
lot more of them come with RPM spec files, even
generates them automatically from a spec.in file, than
with debian scripts.

Probably a function of the majority of Linux users /
programmers working on RPM-based systems but I am
curious about this point: When someone creates a
Debian package of a program (s)he is recommended to
inform the upstream maintainer as well. Should this
not involve the integration of the debian scripts into
the program's source as well?

Am currently dabbling with packaging GLib/GTK+ 1.3 and
finding the debian scripts in GNOME rather
out-of-date, if present at all.
