Dear all, dear Matthew,

Thank you for all your answers. I decided to bud off a probcons-extra
package, mostly because I wanted to learn how to make more than one
binary package frome one source package.

I uploaded the resulting package on mentors.


I have made /usr/share/doc/probcons-extra a symlink to
/usr/share/doc/probcons (probcons-extra depends on probcons). Is it OK
to do such things?

Have a nice day,
