One source, two binary packages
Thanks for all the input. Manoj, I have been relying upon your

I have found my problem. I believed that changelog.Debian
applied to the binary package, rather than to the source package, and
had created one for each binary package. As soon as I put the same
changelog in each directory tree the rules file ran without errors.
To avoid puzzling users, should the changelog mention that two binary
packages were made from the source?
If I had looked more closely at the rest of Manoj's debian
directories instead of just the rules I might not have made this error

package compared to the upstream one." Should these minor corrections
be mentioned in the copyright file? Should they be mentioned in the

Makefile.in. Should these be mentioned in the copyright file or the
After I complete some more cleaning up and checking, I will
upload this package to my home directory on master, and ask that
someone review and comment on it.
