Ann: Debian package

Hi,

as I've stated in
<http://sourceforge.net/mailarchive/forum.php?thread_id=9429234&forum_id=41680>
I've created a Xindy package for Debian basing on
<http://dev.atmarama.org/xindy-2.2-beta2.tar.gz>. I funded some time this
weekend to this project and I've "finished" it. I've a package
http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=362584 that might be
uploaded to the Debian main archive in a few weeks.

So I would like to know if the above-mentioned tarball is ready to be
used as source of a Debian package or would you like to add any changes?

I need some informations for my package which I couldn't find on the web
page or in the source:

* Since when exists the package?
* Who are the copyright holders? Since when?
* Who is the current upstream author? Joachim?

I made some changes on the package. I want use the clisp version shipped
with the source, because it introduces some problems. Instead, I use the
clisp from Debian. This is the patch I used to achieve this:

#! /bin/sh /usr/share/dpatch/dpatch-run
## external-clisp.dpatch by Jörg Sommer <joerg <at> alea.gnuu.de>
##
## DP: Unfortunately, Xindy comes with a full clisp source tree rte/clisp-2.33.2
## DP: that is compiles and link against the clisp interpreter. This increases the
## DP: compile time (think of m65k builds) and leaves security risks and other bugs,

set AM_MAINTAINER_MODE

Hi,

please, can you add the macro AM_MAINTAINER_MODE to configure.in? I've
installed newer autotools and the *.in files are rebuild everytime I
build Xindy.

That's configure.ac, ain't it?
Where must this be placed? At the top?
Before AM_INIT_AUTOMAKE?

JS> I've installed newer autotools

Which version is that?

Sorry, I don't have much time; I've got an IRS audit (``Buchhaltungs-
und Steuerprüfung durch Finanzamt'') for my company this week.

Cheers,

Looking here[1] and here[2] I would say after AM_INIT_AUTOMAKE.
