Adding files to a package...
I'm attempting to create a package from upstream source and I'm
wondering how to add a file to the package that is not included in the
source (e.g. a config file in /etc or a missing man page).
Do I have to add the files in the source itself (something I'd rather
not do as my C programming skills are very limited), in the Makefile
somewhere (again, my knowledge of these is slim) or is there a way to
include the file in the 'debian' directory and then point to it from
somewhere (similar to the method for including init.d scripts and
logrotate.d scripts perhaps).
I have tried putting the file in the debian directory in the correct
path but it gets overwritten when I run dpkg-buildpackage.
Thanks in advance,
