Helmut, The problem you have if you put the ./debian/ directory into upstream cvs, is that the debian packaging stuff must be fixed "before" a new version of drbd is released... e.g. changes in debian revisions should be integrated in next upstream version... > At least I see the necessity to have a co-maintainer for DRBD to avoid too > large time lags. Yes, I co-maintain drbd together with David, I also created updated packages: http://www.abanet.ch/~hug/debian/drbd/0.7.4-2/ Philipp ----- Original Message ----- From: "Helmut Wollmersdorfer" <helmut.wollmersdorfer at gmx.at> To: <drbd-user at lists.linbit.com> Sent: Friday, September 17, 2004 2:49 PM Subject: [DRBD-user] Debianization (was: DRBD 0.7.4) > David Krovich wrote: > >> I agree that it'd be easier if upstream didn't keep a version of the debian >> directory in version control.
