Funny or cruel?

I don't know if it is some kind of strange humor or (accidental?) cruelness; in any case it's quite interesting, that friends always offer you jobs, as long as you still have one...

Small helper for license checks

I'm sure you know the situation, that you have a package, which license file says more or less This is GPL and you later find out (probaly by a rejected upload from Ganneff), that there are some files from a different author or under a different license.

I found the following quite usefull for a quick and dirty check: egrep -Hi 'copyright|LGPL' $(grep -wriL 'GPL' *).

The inner grep will create a list of al files not containing the word "GPL"; the outer egrep will then create a list of all those files containing either the word "copyright" or the word "LPGL".

It's of course not perfect (and far from a nothing found? okay, let's upload it), but at least you'll get a list of files where it's quite sure you need to mentionen them in your debian/control ;)

Anyone has any better checks for such things?

Note to myself:

When moving packages from one package to an other, take special care for proper Replaces: and Conflicts: lines.

Oh... and when finally testing the upgrades, don't waste your time testing it with plain dpkg on the command line. It will fail. You'll need to test it with apt-get or aptitude directly.
