I don't bother with dh-make anymore. Like Steve the (mixed-case! Argh!) .ex
(.EX) files just get on my nerves. A dh7+ rules file I can type from memory
now and that just leaves the minor convenience of having the control file
stanzas written out.

Default Popularity of bzr-builddeb and dh-make

Hello!

I don't agree with that. dh-make is very useful in some cases. And I have
created a lot of own packages already, some of them without dh-make but I
know good sides of it.

I've started packaging two packages about a year ago and first tried it
with dh-make. I found it confusing and not helpful. I don't remember
many details of dh-make, but the gazillions of files that it created
were definitely a contributing factor. I then tried debhelper which made
me much happier and have been using it ever since.

Best,
