I see this has already sparked a thread. I merely followed an example I was previously pointed to. > debian/copyright: you don't claim any copyright over the packaging Hmm, I just filled in the appropriate details from the dh_make generated debian/copyright - I've adjusted it now > debian/cron.d: the cron job does not do anything, it only checks > whether count.sh is executable but never runs it. The shell > redirections are also incorrect. Ack! I was trying to verify that the execurable is there, and if so, run it shooting any output to /dev/null (I've found the script occasionally complains when a message leaves the mail queue before the count.sh script finishes executing) > debian/install: any particular reason why you install shell > scripts it /usr/lib and not /usr/share? I guess I was just following the example from the apache2 package - it drops executables that should be in a user's $PATH in /usr/lib/$package/ eg /usr/lib/apache2/suexec > debian/postrm: the else clause makes no sense. > also, why do you escape the $ in the warning: > echo "postinst called with unknown argument \$1'" >&2 > there's also a spare ' > same thing applies to postinst That would be because I yoinked them from bindgraph and adapted them to my needs. If there is a better example in http://svn.debian.org , I'd appreciate being pointed in it's direction > debian/postinst: instead of ! -d $DATADIR, check out mkdir -p A valid point. Done. > debian/rules: "# Sample debian/rules that uses debhelper." Whoops! > Finally, please also run linda in addition to lintian. And ideally > piuparts. Will do. Once I've fixed the cron.d, postrm and postinst scripts, I'll upload to mentors.debian.net again Regards -- Conall O'Brien +353 (0)1 6535148 | sip:firstname.lastname@example.org http://www.conall.net Eagles may soar, but weazels don't get sucked into jet engines.
