When I looked at the source files in the "debian" folder, I realized, that
it uses a very old and outdated description of the project.
It's not clear to me, how to apply changes myself. It's a rather easy to
solve issue, so I thought I just ask you by email.
Here is the control file of the Ubuntu packages I built in the past years
I'm happy to help with the packaging, but I need to find a time to
remember, how everything worked and to read the policies again.
It may look pretty easy, if you do it often, but if done only once or twice
a year, it's just long enough to have forgotten everything again.
