Popularity of bzr-builddeb and dh-make
 
Hi,

How popular are bzr-builddeb and dh-make in Debian? The current
situation is that packaging-dev recommends bzr-builddeb and suggests
dh-make. It was requested to drop bzr-builddeb from Recommends and add
dh-make [1]. The recommended packages of packaging-dev should be
recommended by most of the Debian developer and not just by the
maintainer of packaging-dev or one single bug reporter. Therefore I am
asking you: How popular are bzr-builddeb and dh-make? Should they be
recommended or just suggested by packaging-dev?

Popularity of bzr-builddeb and dh-make
 
Hi!
Have you considered making a poll for this? Because everyone will tell
you a different oppinion...
For me, I think: bzr-builddeb is specific to Bzr, if you don't use
Bzr, it is useless. Instead, dh_make can be used to generate Debian
templates quickly, so it might be useful for more people, even those
not using Bzr.
I use the Debian Git tools for packaging, I never touched the Bzr
stuff, so I don't need it. I also don't need dh-make often, but it
sometimes is useful.
I can't give any hint, because I am just one developer, but I would
probably prefer dh-make for the reason above.
But if I would need to decide, I would probably suggest both and
recommend none of them :-)
Cheers,
Matthias
