Bug#590094: grokevt: Sample Configuration Needs Extra Subdirectory

Package: grokevt
Version: 0.4.1-6
Severity: normal

The current Debian package renames the upstream
/usr/local/etc/grokevt/systems/example directory to
/usr/share/doc/grokevt/examples .  This is a little confusing because
that directory is intended to be a single configuration profile.
Think of it and everything under it as a single config file.

What would make more sense would be to place this directory at:


or something similar.  I can change the upstream package to use a
better naming scheme in the next release.  Maybe I'll create win2k-example,
winxp-example, etc profiles or something.

Anyway, it was confusing when I was trying to explain where to find
the configuration to an end user of the Debian package.
