Yes, I was knowing this, and I will correct. I would like to ask: in
this case the right name would be
Or, because I am the maintener and the packager of this project, Can I
simply call so ?
(CDBS usually permit to call so if I create with the --native option)

Yes, sir :)

And here go out the long story: I really know that .deb is not the best
way to distribute a software.
To say the true I don't respect the GPL term, because with .deb I don't
release the code (ok, everyone can branch a bzr repo).
To be correct I would telease these files:
I am right?
The problem is: a) this software is project to run only for Debian on
FR. There is no reason because a person of another distro (2008.*, SHR)
sephora. there are better utility to do the same thing that sephora do.
I created sephora only because in Debian @ FR there are no such tool!
I tryed to upload on a Launchpad PPA repository but then I had too many
-- I had to change the section from unstable (debian) to intrepid (ubuntu).
--The apt-source list for ppa seem to be not running on Debian at FR (and I
think is normal)
I asked not to open a project, on Alioth, but I don't think it will be
accepted (it is a too much little project).
So, for now, this is the only way I can release :(
