The aim: Get Lyx 1.4.2 into Debian/sid
 * Additional package dvipost [done]
 * Frontends: qt and xforms
 * Use a Subversion repository at Alioth
 * Fix bugs

=== 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://www.mail-archive.com/lyx-devel@lists.lyx.org/msg133878.html|Discussion on lyx-devel.]]
  * fix-manpage-errors - fix the errors in tex2lyx.1. [[http://www.lyx.org/trac/ticket/6051|#6051]] (doesn't work any longer with LyX 2.0.0, needs to be redone completly (more or less))
 * Monitor the [[http://wiki.debian.org/OldPkgRemovals#defoma | defoma removal]] because of ttf-lyx.
 * Post-Squeeze: Finish the latex-xft-fonts -> ttf-lyx migration.
 * Bug for bogus exec permissions [[http://www.lyx.org/trac/ticket/7276 | 7276]]
 * Remove the conffile removal scripts and other cleanup measures from the maintainer scripts. In theory that should be possible for Wheezy ...
