Re: policy concerning files used by postinst but not to be installed

You seem to misunderstand me. If you copy the files to
debian/tmp/usr/share/..., they will also be included in the deb, and

for whatever name you use. How else could you use them in postinst?
hu? Ok, I misunderstood. I know I must have those files in the deb, it's
just that I do not want them installed on the user file system after the
postinst is over. Like installing them on /tmp, or in another directory
that postinst would delete after the installation. I was looking for
something more clean than that. As you spoke about the debian directory
I thought that it would be a mean to have the files with the deb without
having them installed (like other files on the debian directory, none of
them beeing copied definitively on the user file system).
