Re: RFS: Templayer - HTML Templating Library for Python

Hello Ian,

> Templayer is available at: http://excess.org/templayer/

I've taken a look. First, there's no direct link to the source package.
With some manual url manipulation I arrived there
(http://excess.org/dists/unstable/main/binary-i386/) but it's easiest
for a potential sponsor to just provide a direct link to a dir
containing all relevant files.

Second, the location misses the file that's referenced in the .dsc:
python-templayer_1.1.tar.gz. That means I can't unpack your source
package. Make sure you always provide a .dsc, and the files mentioned in
the .dsc's "Files" section.

Third, the package seems to be Debian Native, i.e. one tarball which
includes all Debian packaging, instead of an orig.tar.gz + .diff.gz.
Please see this useful posting for details on why not to package
software as Debian-native that isn't really Debian-specific:

At least point two needs to be fixed before anyone can even unpack your
package :) Good luck and let us know if you need any more information.
