Re: Article: How to make a Debian package without using a helper

Dear Miriam,

I think I found some typos in your nice article.

 > if she/he already did.
I'd suggest you to use "they" instead of "she/he"
see e.g.:

and... I'd rather prefer you use the present perfect
instead of past simple
<OK, native English speakers can [f|b]lame me ;-)

 > if she/he already did.
if she/he already did --> if they have already done

I do not understand when the *directory* roaddemo_1.0.1 (underscore)
was created.
I think that could be a typo:

The following paragraph is due to is my ignorance
in making packages (is still ignorance strength? ;-)

  I think it would be more logical firstly to rename, then to
expand the package, so /tar/ itself would create the *directory*
roaddemo_1.0.1 (underscore) ;-)
 Do you think -on the other hand- that make & co. would get into
some troubles, being the directory not consistent with the
package-version nomenclature ?
(I do not have by linux box here and I can't try by myself)

Thank you again for your article.
