I guess that both the license and the README.txt actually belongs to /usr/share/doc/$package, that's what debian policy tells us to do. IIRC, documentation browsers like dhelp and the default webserver's configurations publish /usr/share/doc so that users can browse package documentation. So moving these files and symlink them to where the package expect them seems to me the right thing to do. > I'll read up on the emacs changelog mode, I already have dpkg-dev-el > installed already I guess I didn't realize I needed to trigger the > timestamp manually. Yeah, I've really got used to that mode. :-) -- Gruesse/greetings, Reinhard Tartler, KeyID 945348A4 _______________________________________________ pkg-multimedia-maintainers mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org http://lists.alioth.debian.org/mailman/listinfo/pkg-multimedia-maintainers
