Yes, I use it interactively with ishell. I cleaned and commented, so now it
should be usable for you.

Try uncommenting the svn export (lines 12 and 13) in

The whole process is a bit convoluted because

  a) I need the 'rules' file first, as it contains the get-orig-source rule
     to download and rename the upstream tarball.

  b) debuild must be called from the debian subdir within the unpacked
     upstream source.
I think there must be a better way. As the get-orig-source task in rules
is standard, I expect there must be a script that uses this.

The only special part in my test build is the script. However,
I am not sure it is a good idea to implement it in the 'rules', as then
jed-script would become a build-dependency. So, maybe I should again add
a freshly generated jed-extra.install into the SVN.
