I am not familiar with the exact workings of .deb files. I do know how I
would check .rpm files and see if the package is build correctly. Even
before installing one I can see if the proper files are there and a lot
of other things that some may not notice. And in that way I manage to
build a .rpm file with relative few bugs.
