If npm2deb maintainers has only verified that the tool comply with some older version of Debian Policy, then indeed the burden is on each maintainer using the tool to verify that the generated package comply with a different (newer) release of Debian Policy. I am not against this being addressed. My point is just that addressing it involves actually checking that newer release of Debian Policy and ensuring that the tool complies with it. - Jonas -- * Jonas Smedegaard - idealist & Internet-arkitekt * Tlf.: +45 40843136 Website: http://dr.jones.dk/ [x] quote me freely [ ] ask before reusing [ ] keep private
