It builds these binary packages:
pdkindle - Public Domain reading program for plain text books
Although I have not researched this, I am sure that Amazon has
trademarked the word Kindle, so I'm not sure pdkindle would be a
generally acceptable name without causing a ruckus at some point.
My motivation for maintaining this package is: I first created it in 2004
and continue to like it.
Ah, you are upstream :) I would suggest at least a minimal site for
upstream source tracking where new version tarballs can be found. The
debian/watch file is used by uscan to look for new versions on the
upstream site. It could be as simple as a github, bitbucket, or
I have not had any further look at the package, since these were my
first couple reactions to your note.
