Hi Manoj,
Read docs? Programmers are lazy, by design ;-) And if some programmer
streamlines his/her debian programming tool workflow, would it not be
advantageous if this was know? While is may or may not be THE default,
could it be put into /examples or noted in some dev-docs (or wiki.d.n)?
Anyway to reduce errors like un-signed uploads is good, no?
any way, happy hacking!
