Clarification on packaging

Hello everyone

I have a set of changes that I am applying on top of a bunsen based system and I would like to put them in a package and potentially make it available via git (or even launchpad later on).

I have an understanding of basic .deb packaging and I had a look at the bunsen packages on git.

Can I please ask where can I find more about the way your maintainer scripts are structured?

My understanding was that install and postinst (and the rest) were scripts. However, when I am looking into bunsen-utilities.install (for example), I infer that it directs the system to copy the local bin to usr and create a symbolic link from bl-exitrc to etc/bl-exit.

Also, rules is a make script and it is supposed to contain specific targets, but it seems to be a boilerplate file. So, what is the actual entry to the install process?

Looking forward to hearing from you

Re: Clarification on packaging

debian/rules drives the package building process.

The Debian New Maintainers' Guide is the reference you're looking for. It's all documented.
