lintian is very easy to setup, expecially since you already have
a config file /org/lintian.debian.org/config.
1) cd /org/lintian.debian.org/
2) svn co lintian (or apt-get source lintian)
3) ln -sf <lintian dir> root
The only issue is that people.debian.org and merkel.debian.org run
sarge, so you have to install locally some sid packages and patches
lintian to not call dpkg-source with '-q'.
Please look at merkel:/org/scratch/ballombe/lintian
Note that lintian need currenlty about 10Gb of diskspace for a full run.
The needed sid deb (for merkel, probably the same for gluck)
are in /org/scratch/ballombe/lintian/backport.
I unpacked them with dpkg-deb and moved the perl modules directories
to /org/scratch/ballombe/lintian/root/lib/ (so they are in the @INC
Imagine a large blue swirl here.
