Subject: linux-2.6: debian/bin/genorig.py not marked as executable
Date: Sun, 17 Oct 2010 06:28:24 +0200
Source: linux-2.6
Version: 2.6.32-23
Severity: normal

In the specified squeeze version of this package (2.6.32-23),
debian/README.source tells the user to run debian/bin/genorig.py.

Unfortunately, that file is not marked as executable in the freshly
unpacked source package, requiring the user to go "off-script" and
manually chmod ug+x the file before proceeding with the instructions
in README.source.

P.S.

If some of this is from another package used in preparing the kernel
source package, README.source fails to mention that key fact, so I
will assume that bugs in README.source and the scripts it references
belong to the source package containing said README.source file.

linux-2.6 is a version 1 source package, which means there are no
executable files under debian/ except debian/rules.  Developers are
expected to know this.
