At first glance I'd say I'm packaging the game on my own, but I'm open
to alternatives that make everybody's life easier.

I thought about it, and I concluded when the maintainer is part of the
upstream team (or in this case, _is_ upstream), it makes things easier
to keep 'debian/' upstream too.

I saw suggestions to place 'debian/' separately, but they usually
lacked elaboration, so I couldn't tell whether that applied to
freedink.  On the contrary I saw discussion about a packager having
commit access to maintain upstream's debian/ and that was considered

So far it seems better for me not to separate 'debian/' :)

Nice catch. I have access to a amd64 box so I'll setup a pbuilder
there and try.

Sure, I see.  I'll clean debian/rules a bit.

Thanks for your answer!
