I have a package in the archive (and another one I'm working on) which causes lintian to report the extra-license-file warning because of the COPYING.gz being installed in /usr/share/doc/<package>. The file contains a copy of the GNU GPL, so it's in fact useless. Now, I see three ways I could fix this: 1. Being upstream for the software, just edit the original Makefile so the `install' target skips COPYING.gz 2. Edit the Makefile only in the Debian package, commenting out the offending lines 3. Remove the file in debian/rules, *after* installing it The second one seems the best solution to me, since it will work also for software for which I'm not the upstream. Can I have your opinion on the matter? -- KiyuKo <eof AT kiyuko DOT org> Resistance is futile, you will be garbage collected.
