hi all,

i finally have re-uploaded the new version of Gem, this time with
hopefully all the lintian warnings fixed, but one (see below).

this is still the case, since Gem is a small package but "unfortunately"
comes with a big manual. (see the other posts in this thread for a
better explanation)

> W: gem: menu-command-not-in-package /usr/share/menu/gem:5 /usr/bin/pd

ok, fixed this by creating a tiny wrapper script /usr/bin/pd-gem which
is called from the menu.
this seemed to be simplest, with dh_fixperms fixing the permissions in
/usr/share/gem/ and then having lintian complain about a
added manpage for the script as well.

these are the remaining lintian warnings i get with pedantic/experimental:
> P: gem source: direct-changes-in-diff-but-no-patch-system

hmm, cdbs creates this file automatically; do i have to take extra
action to remove it?

> X: gem: spelling-error-in-binary ./usr/lib/pd/extra/Gem/Gem.pd_linux
treshold threshold

hmm, cannot really change this, as fixing the spelling mistakes would
break the API of the plugin

so long - hope to hear from you.
