Bug Description

Please add the example programs from the source tarball, put them in /usr/share/doc/python-pygoocanvas/. IMHO the demos are far more valuable than the html documentation itself...

Thanks for your work Andrea.

I don't like very much the bashism you used but apparently dh_installexamples is happy about it.
Two questions:

1) I see that the examples are installed zipped (if too big), is that ok?
2) Can you also check with seb128 (the original packager) if there was any reason why the demos were not installed, or was a simple oversight?

Lats but not least, I really appreciated that you submit this to Debian. Next time, could you also link the debian bug report here?

Please subscribe again u-u-s when ready.

Hi,

- In fact, if you compile the package with another shell than bash, perhaps it could lead to problems. I'm thinking to test and redo it.
- for (1), you can see:
http://lists.debian.org/debian-devel/2004/08/msg00546.html
that refers to the debian policy and to the dh_compress manpage.
Although I didn't find an explicit size limit in the policy.

- about (2), i'll do, asap.

thanks Cesare.

Before posting this bug report I had already talked to seb128 on IRC; he seemed OK with it.

This is the patch with a non-bash-compliant .examples.
