Yes. Currently the produced deb is 700mb so this definitely needs some
care. Actually debhelper has a sphinx plugin which may do some of the
cleanup already.

I do want to create the package in such a way that it installs fine on
any debian/ubuntu system without breaking other things, so setting
localhost to the directory is something which I prefer doing in the

I readthat too [1], but was unable to find out how to produce daily
builds this way, so I have set up a bazaar mirror of the repo and a

publish to an osgeolive repo at that time). Anyone wanting to
contribute: feel free to do so!
