Does this refer to traditional packaging contents, or traditional packaging
workflows? Or both?
In either case, my first inclination is to question whether this is
something we want included prominently in the packaging guide. It is a
major downfall of our existing wiki documentation that it tries to document
all possible ways that packages can be put together, thus leaving would-be
developers with no guidance about how packages *should* be put together, and
it's my fervent hope that the packaging guide will avoid this trap.
Steve Langasek Give me a lever long enough and a Free OS
Debian Developer to set it on, and I can move the world.
