Package: kde-guidance Version: 0.8.0-6 Hi,
the kde-guidance packaging system completely relies on the python-support internals. I have noticed, among other things: * installation of files to python-support paths instead of the standard paths * symbolic links in /usr/bin to /usr/share/python-support/$package * messing up with the .version files With the upcoming version of python-support (currently in experimental), these things will stop working, since the files are now moved to a different directory (/usr/share/pyshared). It will probably not prevent the package from building, but the resulting package will not work. Furthermore, the direct use of files in /usr/share/python-support is likely to make python generate .py files in there and prevent the package from cleanly removing. To simplify things as much as possible, I suggest the following course of action: * replace the symbolic links in /usr/bin and the wrapper scripts with hardcoded paths by this kind of stuff: #! /bin/sh exec python -m grubconfig * do the same in the init script * installation of files to the standard python paths (using the upstream installation system if possible) Please don’t hesitate to ask if you need help in making a cleaner package. As a general rule, please do not rely on the internals of python-support in the packaging; this will avoid such issues in the future (although hopefully there won’t be a need to change the paths any further). Thanks, -- .''`. Debian 5.0 "Lenny" has been released! : :' : `. `' Last night, Darth Vader came down from planet Vulcan and told `- me that if you don't install Lenny, he'd melt your brain.
