How does Lintian check? Which cvs does conflict?

  * does it use the get-orig-source rule in rules?
    I gave 3 alternative URLs there. My idea here is to fix as much as
    possible directly in the upstream source.
      * finally I managed to get out Jedmodes release 2.0 that is SLang2

        However, this is already outdated by the latest fixes to some modes,
        I plan to do a fixup relase parallel to the release of jed-extra,
        so the relase corresponding to jed-extra will be 2.1 and the next
        jed-extra version hence jed-extra2.1-1.
      * the latest non-released source tarball
        containes all but the latest (>~1 day delay) changes and is 
        available for all that know the (nonpublished) URL.
        The delay is caused by:  
          * transfer of CVS commits to the public CVS servers
            (automatic, 1 ... 4 hours)
          * updating jedmodes.tgz must be initiated by hand, i.e. it is 
            done in irregular intervall whenever I feel the need ....
        Unfortunatly I got some errors in the 'commit' to CVS process
        recently ("cannot create lock for directory ...") so some
        files are out of sync until I can solve or cicumvent this. :-(

      * for local work and local testing I use my local copy
        Changes here are propagated to the Jedmodes CVS.

Hm. I was told by Joerg, that the upstream tarball should have a file
COPYING to be included in Debian. So jedmodes.tgz contains now
mode/COPYING and mode/README.txt.

Also, the Maintainer Guide wants a Debian 'copyright' file.

So maybe we must not copy the upstream COPYING to debian?

Change 'rules'
	# install documentation (under /usr/share/doc/jed-extra)
	dh_installdocs  $$(find . -name \*.html -o -name \*.otl) \
+       README.txt

> W: jed-extra: executable-not-elf-or-script ./usr/share/doc/jed-extra/examples/apsconf/SLang.ssh
This is something I thought dh_fixperms will automagically do for me, but
maybe it has no clue how to find out. So we need to reintroduce the 
chmod -x in the rules.

I would place in u/s/jed/compile. (And not forget
to remove it when purging jed-extra.) We do not set up jed/site-lib/ from
jed-extra any more (the discussion whether to set it up from jed-common
is still not solved).

As jed-extra.install is auto-generated, you need to change
utils/ too to make your changes permanent (done).

This will introduce problems, as the libdir is now usr/share/jed/jed-extra

True, I added an autoload in

so am I. My version of says:

  % Location of the jed-extra package's library dir
  $1 = "/usr/share/jed/jed-extra";

For some reason, update_ini is called with /root/jed/jed-extra/
