Here are some comments: - add FAQ to docs - add CHANGES file as upstream changelog - ITP bug will be closed by the first upload not the first packaging attempt So the Closes should come in the topmost changelog entry. - some licenses are BSD 3-clause some are BSD-2 and others are of the type included in the debian/copyright file - include NOTES file in docs - include examples in docs > The package appears to be lintian clean. Not so! :-( There are Lintian errors in your manpage (hyphen used as minus sign). The report is attached. Regards, Kapil. --

I: tmux: hyphen-used-as-minus-sign usr/share/man/man1/tmux.1.gz:340 N: N: Manual page seems to contain a hyphen where a minus sign was intended. N: '-' chars are interpreted as hyphens (U+2010) by groff, not as minus N: signs (U+002D). Since options to programs use minus signs (U+002D), N: this means for example in UTF-8 locales that you cannot cut&paste N: options, nor search for them easily. N: N: '-' must be escaped ('\-') to be interpreted as minus. If you really N: intend a hyphen, write it as '\(hy' to emphasise that fact. See N: groff(7) and especially groff_char(7) for details, and also the thread N: starting with N: http://lists.debian.org/debian-devel/2003/debian-devel-200303/msg01481 N: .html N: N: If you use some tool that converts your documentation to groff format, N: it might be possible that this tool converts dashes of any kind to N: groff hyphens, while the safe way of converting dashes is usually to N: convert them to '\-'.
