I was able to package the svn checkout of IRClib using it and, as you
said, it was relatively easy to make the .deb package. I see how it is
set to install the jar file under /usr/share/jdeb/lib.
I still need to sort out a few things, like generating the control
file with some defaults, getting the right dependencies in the control
file, and hoping there is a better way to use the jdeb maven plug-in
than inserting that big blob of xml in the pom.xml. It seems like I've
read something in the Maven docs that will help. I am not sure if it's
parent projects or something about pom only packages.
