I don't understand this step. Also it's not always clear when I should do a
step or when CDBS is doing it for me...
I tried to play with it, not sure if I get it for 100% though.

I skipped this one. To keep it a bit simple for me atm.


I've asked the upstream author to provide a manpage and desktop file.
