Hello Andrew,

no need to CC me when you write to pkg-osm-maint :). Also, I'm CCing you
because I don't know whether you're subscribed or not.

Thanks, that's very nice.

The only thing I could argue about is: do smaller commits. "updating debian
files for 0.3-1 release" isn't very useful, and "git show" shows a bunch of
seemingly unrelated changes (apart from the common fact that they happen in
the 0.3-1 package).

It would've been easier for me (or any other sponsor, I believe) if you did
different commits, for example: "Update debian/rules for new upstream build
system" and "Patch upstream build system to avoid running tests until jshlint is
packaged" would already have been better than the single-commit :)

Usually, all non-trivial changes should be documented in debian/changelog:
remember, "debcommit" is your friend (it's a wrapper around "$vcs commit", that
takes your last d/changelog entry as the commit message). It's not mandatory to
use it, but it's nice :)

(I also usually do a "New upstream version" before anything else, right after
the merge, which just adds a new debian/changelog stanza, but that's just a
habit I have to ease diffs and reverts)

The package is nice, just the new patch is missing a DEP-3 header, but I'm
uploading it nevertheless.

Thanks for your contribution!
