i guess you mean debian/copyright here.

Indeed :-)

as "MIT/X11 (BSD like)" (as copyright-check auto-resolved for main code). I corrected the licensing for main code to be Expat - but would prefer that you declare your copyright yourself, and that you declare it in the rules file (writing out the full licensing there, not just a reference) to consistently use debian/rules only to _reference_ copyright and licensing info, not declaring some of it.

ok, my initial intention was to copyright everything under the same license as the upstream code (i think this is common usus, for "free" (main) packages)

Not sure if that is common practice or not. Personally I prefer GPL-2+ for my packaging, except when upstream code outright conflicts with that.

so i'll copy the "Expat" license to debian/rules

You provide a hand-written manpage.  Good!  But even better if it was
possible to instead auto-generate it based on compiled binary using e.g.
help2man, as that is less likely to go stale.

oha, if i had only knewn!

If only I had known that you didn't know and wanted to ;-)

gonna try to do that.


Saw your commit, but haven't tested it yet. Seems to me from a quick glance, hoever, that you save the resulting manpage in root (not in debian dir as earlier) - you probably want to change either that or adapt debian/jacktrip.manpages.

Or not, if all works ok (as I said I only looked quickly).
