New version of Packaging HOWTO
[Please reply to the debian-doc mailing list only]
I've made a draft of my revised Packaging howto available at
I don't consider it anywhere near complete yet, but in light of the recent
discussion on debian-devol, I'm making it available for public comment.
The objective is to give new maintainers an easy introduction to creating
a package with deb-make.
I'm looking for suggestions and criticism on first and foremost technical
details. (Have I got any facts wrong? Is a feature not explained
clearly?) Also on language. (Is it grammatically correct? Have i used any
phrases which might be hard for a non-native English speaker to
understand?) And on any omissions I might have made. If you have any tips
or insights which you think might make useful additions, please pass those
