Re: RFS: stx-btree

Quoting "Ury Stankevich" <urykhy@gmail.com>:

Dear mentors,


I am looking for a sponsor for my package "stx-btree".

  Package name    : stx-btree
  Version         : 0.8.3-2
  Upstream Author : Timo Bingmann (Mail: tb a-with-circle idlebox dot net)
  URL              : http://idlebox.net/2007/stx-btree/
  License         : LGPL 2.1
  Section         : libdevel

It builds these binary packages:
stx-btree-dev - b+tree implementation in c++

The package appears to be lintian clean.

The package can be found on mentors.debian.net:
- URL: http://mentors.debian.net/debian/pool/main/s/stx-btree
- Source repository: deb-src http://mentors.debian.net/debian unstable
main contrib non-free
- dget http://mentors.debian.net/debian/pool/main/s/stx-btree/stx-btree_0.8.3-2.dsc

I would be glad if someone uploaded this package for me.

Not a complete review, but just a list of flaws immediately hurting my eyes ;-):

* your clean target does not work when Makefile is not present (dpkg-buildpackage starts with cleaning up first) * the binary package should be architecture: all, since no arch-dependent code is produced during build phase (pure templates, header-based, right?) * perhaps splitting a separate binary package (-doc) for documentation would be nice, since its size is somehow large enough to justify its creation.

For reference you could have a look at libtut source package which is in Debian proper, yours is in the same boat.
