Thanks for all the help guys. I am now packaging aspell into aspell.deb,
aspell-dev.deb and aspell-doc.deb Should all of them go into the same
section (text)? Or should each of them go into seperate sections (aspell =
text, aspell-dev = devel, aspell-doc = doc)? Different packages seem to do
different things about this. enlightenment-doc, for example, is in section
x11. postgresql-doc is in section doc while postgresql is in section misc.
Also, here is how I see the dependancies between the various pcakages -
aspell suggests aspell-doc
aspell-doc depends aspell
aspell-dev suggests aspell-doc and aspell
