 The tar.gz is generated by GitHub. Of course I could prefix the version with "recsearch-", but on other
git-web-platforms these kind of tags looks weird, see


 Actually the pure version number is the best tag, since then it can be easily used with git-buildpackage, see "the
other godfather" :)


 On my debian-branch I can just ran

 git-buildpackage -tc

 with the following gbp.conf (will add that to my git):

upstream-branch = master
debian-branch = debian

upstream-tag = v%(version)s

 Hm, writing this, of course I can configure git-buildpackage to recognize other version tags... should have omit the
'v'... :)

 For the yaVDR Launchpad PPA I use:
 git archive --format=tar.gz --prefix=vdr-plugin-recsearch-0.2.2/ --output=../vdr-plugin-recsearch_0.2.2.orig.tar.gz

 With this you can do whatever you need with the tarball.

 I decided to use the config-dir, because "cache-dir" sounds a bit "volatile" (a good place for e.g. epg.data which can
fully be rebuild) and the resource-dir should/may be read-only. And after all they are configuration files.

 That's good. :)
