    Hi,

    I finally build a quick and dirty package from version 0.6
    See http://rzr.online.fr/q/SWT

    It is fully usable on a debian system (using sun-java5-jre
    ), but I have to fix a couple of things before it is ok so
    it will take time (60 days min) to be in official archives,
    until that time a new release may appear.

    So please can you consider thoses suggestions

    1/ Please provide those additional files :

    * COPYING : a copy of the Licence check http://opensource.org
    * AUTHORS : all authors and contibutors
    * README : short description
    * INSTALL : how to install
    * NEWS : new features, since last package

    2/ remove compiled classes and binaries
    It is not needed for other architectures or vm

    3/ remove copyrighted material ( samples songs )
    I'll try to find replacements copyleft song , dont panic

    4/ add a main class in the manifest,
    this way we can start the program by double click or use
    -jar option

    5/ search resources in location order :
    * current work directory
    * .jar's dir
    * /usr/share/tuxguitar ...

    6/ rename "make" to "make.sh"
    and add my attached makefile to top dir
    (I may improve it)

    7/ contact me ,
    before releasing next version, i will check it
    or if you need help

    Thanx again your program will be greatly appreciated i am sure.

    for upcoming release :

    - make sure to do some clean up before building the archive :
    find . -type d -name CVS -exec rm -rf {} \;

    - also :
    grep "<" ../TuxGuitar-0.8-src/doc/LICENSE
    <one line to give the library's name and an idea of what
