The package builds fine and DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS=nostrip works as well.
Some issues remain (some of them are new, but all easy to change):
· Please wrap long lines in debian/changelog.
· There is one more mentioning of /usr/doc/ in the man page:
It refers to /usr/doc/copyright/GPL, but should refer to
/usr/share/common-licenses/GPL-2 (and the text above as well).
I did miss this before.
· debian/copyright has a "[LICENSE TEXT]" template where the license
should be included (or in this case referred to the file above).
Also please use "GPL-2+" (for GPL 2 or later).
See for example the copyright information for a Perl module:
· Please call dh_md5sums just before dh_builddeb to include checksums
of the package contents.
· (very minor) debian/control: The Depends: line has two spaces. One
should be enough.
lintian: debian-control-has-unusual-field-spacing (--pedantic)
There is one more lintian warning about debian/watch. The following
seems to find at least the current version:
See uscan(1) for more information about debian/watch.
Please run lintian on your package. It will detect many common packaging
problems. I usually use `lintian -iI *.changes': it will display an
explanation for all issues and look for some more, less important
mistakes. (The last lintian warning I mention is only shown when using
the `--pedantic' option, but those might not always be of interest.)
Note that you should always use the latest version (2.4.3 right now).
Thanks for your work :-)
