I've now updated my installation to player 1.6.5 and stage 2.0.0a, and
had to make a few modifications.
First, stage 2.0.0a requires player 1.6.5 to build. Hence the
Build-depends needs to be updated accordingly.
Secondly, upstream installs stage documentation using cp without caring
$DESTDIR nor about checking for existance of the directory. A patch is
included. I do not know if this is fixed in CVS, if it isn't I guess
someone should report it upstream.

As I remember from earlier conversation, those files were added by
a quick debianization. That might be worth having noted in the BTS.
To my packages I have also added copied the files package.init and
package.default as player.init and player.default. To the default file I
added a configuration file to the DEAMON_OPTS. Having those files in a
debian package makes player start automatically on boot, which is
generally a good thing.
