Re: RFS: kstars-data-extra-tycho2 (third try)


So here comes the review from the guy claiming he wouldn't sponsor that package

Well, I'd actually be willing to sponsor your package, but the following review
tells that it's not completely ready yet and will need another iteration. Let's

- debian/config vs. debian/config.THIS: What is the point of those *two* files?
  Is one of them (.THIS) just a backup version? What is the
  "kstarsrc-previously-exists" debconf value actually good for? Are you sure you
  need that?
- debian/control: It would be nice to synchronize your package description with
  that of kstars-data. Well, and the short description (1) should not start with
  a capital letter; (2) should definitely be *short* and not be any longer than
  60 characters; (3) need not be a complete sentence; (4) should make clear that
  this is related to kstars. Again, take a look at the kstars-data package.
- debian/copyright: It would be nice if it were formatted according to DEP-5,
  see http://dep.debian.net/deps/dep5/. Furthermore I believe there was some
  discussion about the license of this data file. I re-read the discussion in
  #597202, but where do I find information that this dat-file is GPL-licensed?
  BTW: Is there some source-file for this .dat-file? Most likely nobody put
  together this binary file by hand. In this case it would be a lot nicer to
  have the source file in the source package and only ship the .dat file as
  built from the source package as binary package.
- debian/docs: README.source doesn't quite sound like a filename that should go
  in the binary packages. Benoît suggested it as only candidate for debian/docs,
  but I believe you should rather just delete debian/docs.
- debian/README.Debian: That file is supposed to contain information about
  Debian-specific changes, hints for configuration, etc. Probably better just
  delete this file.

Hope this helps,
