- Subject: [XaraXtreme-dev] User suggestions [Was: Debian Packages for XaraLX]
the debian package already produced some feedback. Some of it is not
strictly packaging related, so I will share it with you.

That suggestion might save you work, too.

For that, I need an icon from you, first. Would you be so kind to
include one? png or xpm, anything should be fine (and both even better)

Last thing I heard is that "make install" is not yet supported (and
currently probably not needed).

Not necessary, but always nice to have. If you get around to fill these
files, I'll happily include them in the Debian package
