Re: About control files


DEBIAN/control is automatically generated during package building and is used by the resulting .deb

debian/control is the one you write yourself, with Descriptions and Build-Depends and stuff.

Hope this clarifies things for you :)

Reading this URL:


...I see that the source package control file must be in
"debian/control", and the binary control file must be in
"DEBIAN/control"...am I right? they are different directories? I didn't
knew that.
