Created by David D Lowe and last modified

This branch contains the debian/ directory needed to build Epidermis on Debian systems.

If you look at the history of the branch, you'll see that revisions 1 to 7 (0.2.2-0ubuntu0 to 0.4.1-0ubuntu0) consider Epidermis a native package to Ubuntu. Revision 8 (0.5-1) is the first release of Epidermis as a normal package, which makes more sense considering what type of application Epidermis is.

The packaging is for Debian primarily. If significant changes are needed for Ubuntu, I'll create a separate branch.
