When you build a deb how do you make it so arch independent data such as plugin files to be packaged into a separated .deb?
I did this yesterday for the Inkscape PPA. It's the first multiple-binary package I've written so I'm not 100% sure I've done things correctly, but basically there are two steps...
- Add an arch-independent binary (whatever-plugins) package description into your debian/control file
- Update the dependencies in your debian/control file so that your new whatever-plugins package is recommended/suggested by anything that needs it
- Replace your debian/install file with separate debian/whatever.install and debian/whatever-plugins.install files, specifying which files should be part of each package.
