The .pyc files aren't shipped in the .deb, or they aren't installed when the .deb is installed? If they're installed, I think they should be listed. If not installed when the package is installed, then they definitely shouldn't be listed. > Part of the goal here is to make sure that regardless of the installation > method, there's a list of files that were installed. Since Debian packages > don't install the .pyc files, listing them is wrong. I agree that listing them if they aren't installed is wrong. -Fred -- Fred L.
