FluidSynth 1.1.2 was released a week ago and I thought of trying to package it. For this version, CMake is the new recommended build system, so I am trying to switch to it.

Things are going pretty well (nothing committed to alioth yet), but I noticed that the CMake build system no longer has generates an .a file. I'm not a linking expert, so - does this matter? Programs seem to link fine with the .so anyway.

Second, git-buildpackage seems to believe it is a native package:

dpkg-buildpackage: full upload; Debian-native package (full source is included)
Now running lintian...
W: fluidsynth source: debian-watch-file-in-native-package
W: fluidsynth source: native-package-with-dash-version

How do I avoid that? Should I change the current directory from .../fluidsynth to ..../fluidsynth-1.1.2? Doesn't that contradict the git packaging paradigm?

Third, Squeeze is now frozen. Can this version still go into unstable, or does it have to go into experimental?
