Need to remove Debian packaging meta info from master branch

Gaurav Mishra

Hello all,


During our effort to publish FOSSology as a Debian package, we got few suggestions from the Debian community.

One of those suggestion is to remove the Debian packaging information (debian folder) from the master branch and put it into another branch like chore/debian/jessie.


This is done so to avoid conflicts as Debian maintainers will be editing this packaging information in the FOSSology mirror (hosted at Debian Sala). And any change in upstream can result in conflicts.


As this change will alter the packaging steps required by many of FOSSology users, we need your feedback.


I have opened an issue on GitHub for the same:


Kindly respond either on this thread or on the GitHub issue if you have any concerns regarding the same.

With best regards,
