Re: RFS: lastfm (updated package)
* John Stamp [Tue, 01 May 2007 15:33:30 -0700]:
Hi again, John. I've uploaded the package.
For the next upload, there are some minor issues I'd like you to
* remove "This file will be overwritten on upgrade" from lastfm.js
* install lastfm.desktop to /usr/share/applications instead of
/usr/share/applications/kde. I believe this way lastfm will appear
in the GNOME menu as well.
* since lastfm.mozilla is not meant to be called directly by the user,
put it under /usr/lib/lastfm, and adjust lastfm.js accordingly, and
remove lastfm.mozilla.1. This is recommended/mandated by Policy.
* maybe s/unstable/UNRELEASED/ in those changelog entries that never
got uploaded to the official archive.

Yeah; either would be fine, IMO.

The canonical reference would be dh_install(1), and you can check any
package in the archive: most use dh_install. As a brief summary, a
debian/$package.install file contains a number of lines, each with a
file to install (or a wildcard), followed by an optional destination of
the file. The single thing dh_install can't do is renaming file. So, for
With that, also the debian/dirs is mostly unnecessary, since needed
directories are created by dh_install.
