I take it you are upstream as well? I think the recommended way of
doing upstream+debian is to have the .diff include all of ./debian/,
such that other distros don't have to deal with it. Also, that way
you can do a Debian update without an upstream update.
It is far move convinient for me to hold everything in one CVS repository
than splitting this to pieces. I have additional files for Gentoo, for PLD
and for Fedora/RedHat. Other distros are stored in the Port-linux
directory, only Debian requires a specific directory to be present in the
top directory. As for other distros, my DHCPv6 works even on those Windows
things (sorry for cursing on the list). Oh well, they'll have to live
Are you sure? I see it; I'm using dpkg-deb -c ../dibbler-client*deb
-rw-r--r-- root/root 68 2005-01-30 15:34:12 ./etc/dibbler/client.conf
Problem was with old all-in-one package, which held all of those conf
files. It was removed, but not purged. And I had the whole /etc/dibbler
directory removed manually. Purging everything solved that.
Good job, though.

Thanks for the info. lintian didn't complain about that.

Hmmm, ok. I have to fix that.
I'm not sure what do you mean. As mainstream already contains all dibbler
stuff, the only thing that needs to be changes is path substitution. After
that dpkg-buildpagage -rfakeroot generates everything, including .diff.
I notice that your .diff looks backwards though..do I misunderstand?
Do I make something wrong?
