[pkg-fgfs-crew] flightgear - Help still needed?

Hi Joachim,

I continued the current naming convention for the simgear packages
started by the original Debian Maintainer. I think this is to allow the
user to install both the simgear 2.0.0 and 1.9.1 shared libraries. For
instance as atlas depends on simgear1.9.1 and flightgear depends on
simgear2.0.0 if the simgear package was not named as such I would not be
able to install both. 

Looking at the packages you built, you haven't built any aircraft. These
packages are also available from the Debian Mentors site named
fgfs-aircraft-X where X is the name of the aircraft. Previously the base
package contained these aircraft, but I thought a better system would be
to package them independently as they have there own versions and this
would create a pathway for more aircraft to be included with Debian. I
considered putting the default aircraft as dependencies, but if the user
installs it using aptitude or a similar tool the aircraft packages will
be automatically installed as they are recommends.
