Sorry about that. It is possible that the webserver has somehow
been configured not to display README files.

For now I have renamed it to Readme.

Also I have identified a bug in the last line of installchanges,
it tries to move the changes file to the done directory with
this perl command:

rename($ARGV,"done") or die "Cannot move $ARGV to done: $!";

but perl isn't this convenient, I may have to extract the filename from
$ARGV (without the path) and add that to the end of the directory.

Sounds good.

A very simple hack, the first parameter is replaced with a file name,
this file is opened and a list of files retreived.

It is a 4 to 6 line diff.

The dpkg-scanudebs is almost identical but it has a single instance of
".deb" replaced with ".udeb".

A --file-list parameter would be good, and an option to use udebs
instead of debs.

A --file-list option will make the first parameter obsolete though, it
is not required.
