Hi Thorsten,

Thank you!

I'm the main maintainer, so I will answer the questions on behalf of Petter.

The package layout is derived from upstream's separation into a framework and
additional plugins. It may make sense to combine them into a single package.
It's also possible that the layout has changed between the first Debian
packages I made and needs a review.

I'll investigate.

uranium-tools is mainly a cmake script for Cura to rebuild the translation
files. I explicitly put this into a separate package, because that way it can
be a pure build dependency for Cura. Normal users don't need this.
Does that make sense?
