Bug#658306: preload/0.6.4-2 [ITA] -- adaptive readahead daemon

retitle 658306 RFS: preload/0.6.4-2 [ITA] -- adaptive readahead daemon

I've been working further on this package. The changelog now looks as follows:

   * New Maintainer (Closes: #646216)
   * Switched to 3.0 (quilt) source format.
   * Corrected the logrotate location. Thanks to Tobias for the patch.
     (Closes: #619384)
   * Improved init.d script
     + Add init.d status support. Thanks to Peter Eisentraut for the patch.
     (Closes: #645156)
     + The script now provides itself.
   * Created debian/watch.

You can get the source files as usual:

dget -x http://mentors.debian.net/debian/pool/main/p/preload/preload_0.6.4-2.dsc

The new changes since the first mentors upload are the watch file and the
init.d script providing itself. Apart from that, there's another error I
haven't been able to solve:

  I: preload: spelling-error-in-manpage usr/share/man/man8/preload.8.gz configuratoin configuration

When a quilt patch is created for that purpose, for some reason it doesn't
work. Maybe because debian/rules contains the following in "clean:"?

  rm -f src/preload.8 # generated at build time by help2man

Here is the "dpkg-buildpackage -sa" report:

  patching file src/preload.8
  Unreversed patch detected!  Skipping patch.
  1 out of 1 hunk ignored -- saving rejects to file src/preload.8.rej
  dpkg-source: error: LC_ALL=C patch -R -t -N -p1 -u -V never -g0 -E --no-backup-if-mismatch < preload-0.6.4/debian/patches/manpage-spelling.patch gave error exit status 1
  dpkg-buildpackage: error: dpkg-source --after-build preload-0.6.4 gave error exit status 1

And then there's --pedantic, showing another small bit:

  P: preload: copyright-refers-to-symlink-license usr/share/common-licenses/GPL

Should I solve it? I would very much like to, but then, which GPL license
should I refer to when I don't know which one to choose? (GPL-[123])

Thanks for your time,


PS: Still looking for a sponsor, thus I would really appreciate it if someone
helped me through this adoption :-)
