Currently left out of Matt's PPA. Debian's package for unstable already has it.

This should be a separate package.

@luke-jr I've no strong feelings; I'm sure I've come across both single-binary packages and lump-it-in-with-the-oft-unused-daemon packages in Debian. Seems like a distro decision to me, but consistency over where to find what binary seems a good idea, however it's achieved.

This does highlight the slightly silly situation of Debian's debianisation living with them (neither clearly following git nor pushing stuff like this to git), and the PPA's debianisation living here. Would be nice to change things in just one place.

No strong feelings on this, although @luke-jr does have a point. bitcoin-tx is an utility that depends on neither the server nor the RPC client.

Filed a bug with Debian's maintainers, making a case for splitting it out like Gentoo does. Let's see what they say.

For the moment, the pull request is obviously better than not shipping the tool at all.

It is better to merge this, and then update if the new pkg route is chosen.

ACK, merge unless/until a new package is created.

Reverts the change putting it in the bitcoind deb.

No reply on the bug but I can't really see Debian folks disagreeing, so the updated version puts bitcoin-tx in its own single-binary package. @TheBlueMatt might want to comment and/or add a changelog entry, if only so that the resulting package version is bumped to 0.11 - there are Ubuntu-specific suffixes in there so I'm not sure I should touch it.

Five boost libs plus libcrypto are needed; I don't think that quite passes for minimal.

utACK as it is now. I would prefer you not touch the changelog (I need to push an update that syncs it with the latest version used against the Ubuntu repo first, so unless you want to do that, just leave it).
