Hi Thomas,

Seriously, you're more likely to get a constructive debate on
debian-devel-games at lists.debian.org!

I'd say it's easy enough just to do it ;-). If you don't mind I can push the
appropriate doc-base files...

I see you uploaded, which is just as well. I had a look at your packaging,
and I've made some corrections (in particular I fixed your dh_auto_configure
override, and fixed the manpages); is it OK if I push them to the git

A few of things you might want to look at:
* the robots tutorial license is GFDL, so you should mention that in
  debian/copyright (as well as avoid shipping the license file in the
  generated packages)
* your patches directory has a debian-changes file which should ideally be
  split up into component patches
* git-buildpackage doesn't work out of the box, it needs --git-ignore-new
  because the build deletes some files which are in the upstream branch; this
  is probably a bit harder to fix, you might need to copy them somewhere and
  restore them in your clean target

Thanks for you packaging work,
