I am posting to both lists since I am unsure where the best place is. I
am however not subscribed to any of them, so please keep in Cc for the
As a dependency of the Virtual Observatory "DACHS" package , which I
am planning to package, I need to have the "q3c"  and "pgsphere" 
packages in Debian. All packages already exist in a separate repository
; the initial packaging was done by Florian Rothmaier.
However, I am very new to Postgresql extension packaging, and therefore
I would ask to get some useful hints here. Especially: Is there a Debian
policy for postgresql extensions that documents the preferred way for
packaging? A preferred git repository? Or is the Debian Science git
repository OK? Are extensions dependent on the postgresql version, and
if yes, how should I create the package to enable smooth transitions?
What are the preferred names for the packages?
I would be glad to get some initial startup here (maybe a simple
template or so)?
