Re: Wishlist for 2010 and beyond - A graphical frontend for creating debian binaries and source package

The easy part of creating a Debian package is already handled with dh_make or 
checkinstall.  The hard part is having your packaging match policy, which 
boils down to editing a bunch of text files.  We already have graphical front-
ends for editing text files.

You are welcome to take on the task.  I don't think you'll get much resistance 
from the sponsors, as long as your source package (and the binary package it 
creates) matches policy.

I don't consider the goal important enough to re-prioritize what I'm doing to 
make time for it, so I won't be helping with the port.
