As reported at <http://bugzilla.elinks.cz/show_bug.cgi?id=1117>, contrib/debian/elinks.desktop is in a pre-standard format that triggers a warning from the mimeo program. I could easily fix that in the upstream elinks sources; however, Debian already has an up-to-date elinks.desktop file that also includes translations to a few languages. To avoid needless forking, I'd like to copy that version to the elinks-0.12 branch and later merge to master.
Then, to keep authorship information, I think I should also copy debian/changelog, and perhaps the rest of the debian directory. According to <http://bugzilla.elinks.cz/show_bug.cgi?id=988>, the Debian maintainer does not want us to have a debian/ directory in the ELinks sources, so the files would go in contrib/debian/. Does that seem reasonable to do? Also, should I make the commit a merge (from git://git.debian.org/git/collab-maint/elinks.git#debian/unstable), or would that just complicate later Debian maintenance? I suppose another solution would be to move elinks.desktop out of contrib/debian/ and update AUTHORS accordingly. It does look a bit odd that the Arch Linux build script reads a file from a Debian-specific directory.
