Thanks, Alexander! On Sunday, the links were all pointing to
"34", and clicking in different links would download the
same file. Now, as you noted, the links changed, but it
seems that the directory number is more important than the
file name that follows it. I don't know why, since I'm only
a user of the site.

I changed it to 3.6.2. Ok?

I removed the commas. You might be correct: English uses
less commas than Portuguese.

I noted the difference in addresses when was making the
package. I'll correct the address in the upstream package
for the next version of the program, but I'm not including
the file COPYING in the the Debian package. The file
"copyright" has the correct address, and it asks the user to
see /usr/share/common-licenses/GPL-2.

dh_foo commented lines deleted. I had almost not changed the
"rules" created by dh_make. I've only added the option
-Xmanual to dh_compress, although I'm not 100% sure that
this is accordance with the Debian Policy, which says that
most files have to be compressed. However, some systems are
not configured to transparently deal with .pdf.gz, and the
user of statist have to read the manual if he or she wants
to know how to prepare data files for statist.

I've checked it with lintian (1.23.8) and linda
(0.3.13.sarge.1). But, as I told above, I'm not using the
file COPYING, where the old address is.

I uploaded the new files, downloaded with wget, and
dpkg-source them. Two links CHANGED again:


The .orig.tar.gz remains the same:
