Great! Most work to make PackageKit Debian-compliant was done by Daniel
Nicoletti, Richard Hughes, Sebastian Heinlein and many others.
Before you complain about this after review: Do you know a way to disable
the automatic patch creation which was introduced with the 3.0 deb format?
PackageKit updates the documentation and other files during build. This is
not undone in make distclean, so debhelper creates a huge patch in
debian/patches, which is really ugly.
Is there a workaround for this or do I have to live with it?

The package can be found on mentors.debian.net:
- URL: http://mentors.debian.net/debian/pool/main/p/packagekit
- Source repository: deb-src http://mentors.debian.net/debian unstable
main contrib non-free
- dget
