If you think these files help users to get started with the package, then it should go there. If it doesn't help, leave it. > Also, Pd users will expect the examples to show up in the Pd library > browser.

The format (html, text, pdf) doesn't really matter. >> Similar to the discussion on pd-zexy, is something needed to use motex? >> If so, you should document that in README.Debian. > > The instructions in pd-zexy/README.Debian are not Debian-specific and > nothing about the Debian packages require users to load libraries > differently than on other platforms.

Would it be possible to install a copy of the official documentation in the package? This way debian users could also read it offline. -- Gruesse/greetings, Reinhard Tartler, KeyID 945348A4 _______________________________________________ pkg-multimedia-maintainers mailing list email@example.com http://lists.alioth.debian.org/mailman/listinfo/pkg-multimedia-maintainers
