At , binary debian packages of filesender are published (thanks a lot for that!). I stumbled upon a problem with this packaging, and would like to fix that, and send
you a patch for it. Having a copy of the debian/control , debian/rules and other debian packaging
files would be helpful for that.

Thanks, Bye, Joost

I am happy to include the files from debian into the main repository. Hopefully there is a more elegant solution than extracting them from filesender_1.7~beta1_all.deb and bringing those in.

Hi monkeyiq,

thanks for your reply. Unfortunately, files like debian/rules , debian/watch and debian/control do not
end up in the binary .deb package. Unless we find back the sources, we'd have to reconstruct these
from scratch... Maybe they're somewhere in some git repo, or perhaps some filesender*.debian.tar.xz files could be found somewhere?

Bye, Joost

PS & FYI: I've just published which just might work on current debian stable.

any news on this? is still lacking .dsc and .debian.tar.xz .
any plan on packaging newer releases? we'd like to start using the multiple-file-upload features
on our debian platform.

Thanks, Bye, Joost
