Probably someone else will come up with better examples, but here are
- For traditional dh, glest-data comes to mind, but you'd probably
want to use a debian/install file instead of using "cp" in
- For dh7, you could take a look at gnome-activity-journal, which is
a Python application and not a data package, but again the main change
would be using a debian/install file instead of having dh7
automatically call distutils to do the job.
- (You can see an example of debian/install usage in topshelf, but
the rules file there is CDBS.)
In any case, there shouldn't be much to it, you just put in a minimal
dh7 debian/rules file and then a debian/install file where you list
all files/directories "<file> <destination directory>", one line each
(for example, "mycoolapp.png usr/share/pixmaps").
I hope this helps. If you've got any particular problem, just ask.
