OK, I will try to do this package.

What path? Where I can find this path?

The archive has no COPYING file or other allusion about the license.
Every executable script should have man pages. The scripts should print
the messages about the "usage: xxx". It would be not bad that there were
Makefile with an "install" and "uninstall" targets. There should be the
documentation in the same archive.
