LyX is collaboratively maintained in the pkg-lyx Alioth project. LyX is collaboratively maintained on salsa.debian.org.
It's currently maintained with the git-buildpackage toolchain in conjunction with pristine-tar and tarball imports, thus still disconnected
from the upstream git repository.

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
== general notes ==
 * Since at least 2.1.0 there is a build dependency on bc to compare Qt versions, see also:

  * http://lists.alioth.debian.org/pipermail/pkg-lyx-devel/2014-September/006379.html
 * Lintian warning: "I: lyx: spelling-error-in-binary usr/bin/lyx collapsable collapsible" - got forwarded by SvenHoexter some time ago to upstream, but was declined by a general disagreement about the correct spelling depending on country you're in.
