missing comma in d/control

should be in the override_dh_auto_install target

nvidia shipped jquery 1.9.1, debian has 1.7.2 - is this a compatible
replacement? also there are more jquery related scripts, some explicitly
marked as modified:

  jquery.ba-hashchange.min.js: * Modified 2013-5-24 CUDA: remove browser
sniffing for jquery 1.9.1 compatibility

also in iceweasel console I see jquery related js errors if I manually
replace jquery.min.js

so I think we should postpone the jquery part for now, needs more testing

do you have anything ready for help2man? or anything else that should go
into 5.5.22-6?

Otherwise we should upload this soon (and push it to wheezy-backports
once it reaches testing) and I'll merge the changes into 6.0 to continue
the work there ...
