I would avoid calling
source /etc/fsl/fsl.sh ; /usr/bin/fsl
and consider it more sane if you write a wrapper script in /usr/bin/fsl
or something like that. This ensures that the config file is *always*
read before fsl is started. Moreover I would call the config file
fsl.conf and not fsl.sh (even if it contains shell code)
I see no reason to invent just another README.Debian - just put all
contents into one file. It is very convinient to put comments regarding
the source package into README.Debian
I'm posting this bug report, because it would by a huge waste of time if
someone would duplicate this work.
This is exactly the purpose of ITP bugs ...
There are several open issues: e.g. upstream ships several libs that are
available as proper Debian packages and all those libs all linked
statically to a pretty large number of binaries.
If someone is interested in contributing to this packaging attempt,
please contact me.
You seem to be a brave man to attack this target. :-) Good luck (or rather
wish you a certain amount of spare - or even paid - time to get it finished).
Thanks for your effort
