That's something we could consider having in a /contrib directory in the
tree. We already have support for building Fedora-compatible RPMs in the
upstream repo, so I don't think we'd be likely to refuse a patch to
provide similar for Debian.
Right. It would make more sense to have the debian packaging bits
directly in a debian/ directory at the root of the source code as this
is where it will end up anyway.
However, I can't guarantee that the upstream
maintainers will keep the Debian parts up to date if we change
dependency requirements or similar.
It seems that it may make more sense to maintain the debian packaging
bits in a different branch. I've already setup an import of the git
branch on LP . My proposal is to maintain the debian packaging
branch there as a branch from the git import - what do you think?
