The aim: Get Lyx 1.4.2 into Debian/sid
* Additional package dvipost [done]
* Frontends: qt and xforms
=== dvipost ===
* Edit the short description - do not start with "A" http://www.de.debian.org/doc/manuals/developers-reference/ch-best-pkging-practices.en.html#s-bpp-pkg-synopsis
* Rework the post* scripts to be only called when really necessary
* remove the commented out lines from rules
=== lyx ===
* look which changes to the packaging are required - Diff between 1.3.6 packaging and Georgs unoffical package is here: ftp://hxt.homelinux.org/debstuff/136-vs-142georg.diff
* sort out the bugreports -> ask for feedback for all others
* put the debian dir in subversion and find out how svn-buildpackage works
* Which version is the right one unless 1.4.2 is released - 1.3.6+1.4.2svn2006..., 1.4.1+1.4.2svn2006..., 1.4.2svn2006...
* Should we recommend rcs and dvipost or depend on them?
* Make it binNMU-safe.
* Break dependency loop?
* lyx-qt and lyx-xforms should only depend directly on the libraries they really use. See http://lists.debian.org/debian-devel-announce/2005/11/msg00016.html
| * Send patches upstream. We should aim at having a minimal packaging, as much as possible should be sent upstream. Only Debian-specific and "packaging-specific" stuff should be kept.
* prefer-xdg-open - Will be Debian specific until all other issue with xdg-open are solved. [[http://email@example.com/msg133878.html|Discussion on lyx-devel.]]
* Monitor the [[http://wiki.debian.org/OldPkgRemovals#defoma | defoma removal]] because of ttf-lyx.
