Packaging policy

We are using the following rules for our packages:

  1. We use debhelper.
  2. We use dh in debian/rules, to keep it short and clean.
  3. debian/rules clean removes or restores ALL generated files. (The only exception being debian/po/templates.pot, which has to be generated at the end of clean to make life easier for translators.)

  4. Everything should be built from source. (In particular, packages using autotools should use dh --with dh_autoreconf).

  5. We allow no lintian errors at all, and no lintian warnings where reasonably possible.
  6. Watch files are always present and up to date.
  7. We use DEP-5 copyright files on all packages.
  8. We write verbose changelogs which follow the "where, what, why" rule.
