I'd like to get gmerlin-avdecoder included in Debian.  I see that its quite close, it seems to me that it just needs an improved debian/copyright.  Any reason why I shouldn't just make that change and submit it to the ITP?

It's not only a matter of update the copyright file: you have to repack the upstream tarball, to get rid of some content. I'll look after the original mail to see what was left (I haven't been able to do that with git).

I notice the package uses CDBS. Nice ;-)

You then probably want to make use of the upstream-tarball.mk snippet and simply declare which files or folders needs stripping, et voilá you get a repackaged tarball with the get-orig-source target.


Tell me if you need help doing it, or perhaps would like me to do it.


Kind regards,
