  Description     : common build system for Debian packages

 This package contains the Common Debian Build System, an abstract
 build system based on Makefile inheritance which is completely
 extensible and overridable.  In other words, CDBS provides a sane set
 of default rules upon which packages can build; any or all rules may
 be overridden as needed.
So, CBS was an experiment, and I learned a lot from it.  build-common is
a lot better.  It even uses itself to build itself :)  Once it's in the
archive I'll write up something about it here.
