While working on Bug#460620: ITA: gimmie — elegant desktop organizer, I noticed that I need to upgrade debian/menu to the new policy.
Currently, gimmie uses Apps/Tools, but what should I use now? It does not fit into the other sections. Recommendations?
Other important changes:
- I am the new maintainer
- Gmenu and sexy extensions are not built, instead the python-gmenu and python-sexy packages are used
- Gimmie’s extensions are compiled for Python 2.4 and Python 2.5
- debian/copyright uses the format defined at http://wiki.debian.org/Proposals/CopyrightFormat
- The suspend and hibernations buttons are back again (Commit)
To create the orig.tar.gz tarballs, you need to have pristine-tar installed. To build the package, install git-buildpackage (from unstable) and pristine-tar and simply run ‘git-buildpackage –git-pristine-tar’
The same instructions also apply to building readahead-list, which can be found at git://git.debian.org/git/collab-maint/readahead-list.git
