Package: darcs-buildpackage
Version: 0.5.5
Severity: important


after you showed me darcs and I kind of liked it I decided to manage my
packages for Debian with darcs-buildpackage now. So I installed it and
started with reading the documentation.

This has raised much confusion. The main thing is that it contains lots
of oddments from tla-buildpackage (which it seems to be based on). If
you follow the instructions for 'Building and Working With Source', for
example, you won't even be able to check out the source because your're
pointed to commands like

> tla buildcfg debian/rdiff-backup/0.12.5-1

which don't seem to be related to darcs or darcs-buildpackage at all.

It would be a huge improvement, expecially for people who just started
using darcs and darcs-buildpackage, if there were better documentation.
