(The new tarball is 35k vs. the 140K of the other -2 tarball.) Hi Jeremiah, you're almost done ;-) However, the original tarball has not been changed, you've generated a .diff.gz with those changes. So, in order to create a new upstream tarball for version 1.4.5, please do the following steps: 1. Get the tarball swedish_1.4.4.tar.gz and unpack it 2. Remove the debian directory and the file "konfigfil" 3. Apply the patch from bug #186072 4. Do the transliteration of directory and file names 5. Rename the top directory from swedish-1.4.4 to swedish-1.4.5 6. Create a new tarball with the following command: tar czf swedish_1.4.5.orig.tar.gz swedish-1.4.5 Afterwards, create a new debian directory inside the directory swedish-1.4.5 and copy the files you already have edited into that directory. Now run dpkg-source -b swedish-1.4.5, which should result in a .diff.gz file. By the way, did you read the Developer's Reference, New Maintainers' Guide, and Debian Policy Manual? They are all linked from www.debian.org/devel/, and they contain explanations about differences between Debian native packages and "normal" packages. I recommend that you read all those documents. > > > Does this mean I have to become "upstream" for the swedish package? > > > That is not really a problem, I just want to make sure of my > > > responsibilities. > > > > Yes, exactly.
