Hi Daniel,

I'm not too confident but the rules do their job.

>From the README of pkg-voip team: "To download the *.orig.tar.gz to
the ../tarballs directory, most of the pkg-voip packages have a
"get-orig-source" target in their debian/rules. Further, there is a
"print-version" target showing the upstream version used for the
current packaging. You can run the get-orig-source directly from
trunk/ or tags/$version/."

So, this is fine.

The files are installed in the right directory
debian/kamailio-[module]-modules/ .... using the proper arguments with
make install.

I'm already member of the pkg-voip team so I hope someone of team will
sponsor the upload when it will be ready.
But yeah, maybe I need to ask on mentors about this problem.

Thanks for your suggestions
