no doc/helena* file either.

This seems to be common for all the programs I have tried
so far.

How do you change it?

Is it possible to just have it mail the uploader?

errr.... I don't consider this to be Debian packaging:

katie (0notforuse0-0) unstable; urgency=low

  * Initial non-release.  [The packaging is nowhere near complete; don't
  * bother trying to use it unaltered.]

If this actually has been tested and does generate a valid package,
I stand corrected; but this comment makes it look like it never
has been tested.

The date and version also put me off just a little bit too.

PS. I am not trying to insult you, I am just trying to work out
if DAK can fit my needs ot not.

So far I would like to think that DAK will fit my needs, but there
still are issues I mentioned in my other E-Mail.

Looking at DAK for the first time is very much information overload,
so it isn't always easy to find details no matter how obvious they
may appear to be to someone more experienced.
