    Meta package

    Does any one know how to make a meta package such as ubuntu-desktop

    This meta package contains some files. Is it enough to edit control file in there? Or is there an aplication to make meta package?
    Im still in OpenSource age but I hope that through the years I will reach for the Free nirvana that is waiting me out there.

    Yes. You can add your custom docs to your debian tree. Bump the changelog if you are keeping the same package name.

    That's about all I know about the process...

    You may take a look at: http://www.us.debian.org/doc/manuals....html#s-equivs

    The equivs package can be used to create virtual packages.
