[pkg-nvidia-devel] [Patch 8/8] lintian cleanup

finally, the last patch in this series :-)

Just cosmetic changes that reduce the amount of lintian warnings.
* drop XS- prefix
* add Homepage:
* reindent NEWS
* add dummy watch file

(again, debian/control has to be regenerated after applying the patch)

The following files are unused, outdated and could be considered for
permanent removal:

./mail: just a copy of ./script
debian/nvidia-settings.*: not built from this source for quite some time
debian.binary/postrm: empty, does not even have a #DEBHELPER# token
patches*/: outdated, not used for quite some time

Packages built with the full patch series (patches 1-8) have been
successfully tested in pbuilder environments for
* package build in sid/amd64, sid/i386, squeeze/amd64, lenny/amd64,
* installation in sid/amd64, sid/i386,
* updates from sid + 185.18.14-2~svn in sid/amd64, sid/i386,
* update from squeeze + 185.18.14-1 to sid + 185.18.14-2.1 (amd64)
  with manual selection of the new packages (nvidia-libvdpau1*,
  libcuda1*) to be installed


I hope this patch series helps to improve and simplify the
nvidia-graphics-drivers packages and fix some currently open problems.
I'm open for comments etc.
If there is something additional I should look at, please let me know.
Things that might be done later are updating debhelper compat level and
standards version, moving installation from debian/rules to
debian/*.install, ....
