I don't see anything wrong with your script, but I'm not sure what it
will be used for. I've been using debian for a couple years now, but
I've never been a package maintainer, so that may explain my

Will you use the make-nightly script to generate a nightly .pkg file so
that debian users can "apt-get upgrade" in unstable or a private
repository to get the lastest nightly? That would be certainly be cool.

Yeah, cvs doesn't distribute executables files, so we need to manually
set scripts ugo+x.

BTW, the debian directory in stable-0-4-4 only contains two empty
directories, that generates this error when executing the script:
cp: cannot stat `debian/changelog': No such file or directory
Can't open debian/changelog: No such file or directory.
chmod: cannot access `debian/rules': No such file or directory

It looks like directories spread to all branches in CVS... We might want
to change the
if [ -d debian ]; then
test to
if [ -f debian/changelog ]; then

What do you think?
