Re: Correction to web site information: OpenMRS has debian packages available for download
I hope you don't mind if I quote you in public but I think there are
some issues which might interest other people here. It is perfectly
OK if you post your questions to the list in the future. They are
on topic there.
At first I'm happy that you made some progress!

Yes, that's normal. It is described in Developers Reference and just
a convention which comes handy if you are working in a team and
everybody uses this. The script is also used by uscan in the
debian/watch control file. However, dpkg-buildpackage just expects a
ready prepared orig.tar.gz tarball.

Just tell us here on list. Some Debian developer (probably me) will
have a close look and try to rebuild the packages and test on his
machine. In case everything is fine he will upload the package as so
called sponsor. You are not allowed to upload to the Debian mirror as
long as your GPG key is not in the keyring of Debian Developers or

Hope this helps
