The debian and ubuntu packaging is very similar, it uses the same build system 
and tools, just the packages differ a bit. But for olsrd I almost expect the 
same package to work.

http://www.debian.org/doc/manuals/maint-guide/ and 
http://www.debian.org/doc/manuals/developers-reference/ are good starting 
points if you want to learn how to package.

That said, "apt-get source olsrd ; cd olsrd-0.4.10 ; less debian/*" on a 
debian unstable system/chroot is another good starter. Another good one 
is "./debian/rules binary".

I have added some patches to the 0.4 package which mostly can be removed (as 
they are part of 0.5.1 now), also I made some other minor changes (mostly in 
respect to FHS and shipping the plugins READMEs iirc), which I want to 
check/remove and report upstream if still needed (=here :)

If you have a package ready, please gimme a link :)

	Holger (who is sorry for having no time atm. At latest in a month at the 
cccamp I'll find^wtake the time for this.)
