Well, I'm far from a packaging expert but I think it's considered bad form
to include a debian folder in the sources. Some of the files on this folder
as to be changed for each distribution, for each modifications etc.

But I could be wrong so let's ask Yavor Doganov who first packaged
SimpleAgenda for Debian.

What could possibly be done is repository of .deb diffs of GNUstep
applications and libraries ? Not sure it would be really useful as we can
find those diffs on debian.org.

Both ways are described in Debian documentation, but the "no-debian-folder"
is encouraged.

Note to self : check the documentation before replying :o)
Thanks for the info.

When I target Debian, I personally prefer adding a debian/ folder (or a way
to replicate it), because I want to be able to produce an official package
easily, and I want my users to be able to pull a revision from VCS at
random, and produce a package from it.

For one particular package yes but I don't think this is manageable here. It would mean adding debian/ folders in gnustep svn, gap cvs, textedit git etc.

If someone's up for it, it may be a good idea to make an official build
ruleset (even if stored separately), as well as make it possible to use
GNUmakefiles for generating the debian/ folder for libraries and apps.

If I manage to build usable packages and people start using them, I will try to automate the process, cleanup the debian parts, add some scripts and put that somewhere on the net.
