dirvish for Debian
------------------

- For (hopefully) helpful instructions how to set up dirvish on your Debian
  system, see the HOWTO.Debian file.

- Biggest difference with the upstream version of dirvish is that the Debian
  package installs a default cron script, which runs at 22:04 (feel free to
  adjust this time, in /etc/cron.d/dirvish).
  There used to be more differences, but upstream was kind enough to accept
  many of my patches :-)

+ If your system is not running 24/7, you may want to change the cron.d entry
  into a cron.daily script, so that dirvish will be run by anacron when
  necessary.

- Upstream installs all the utils into the bin directory. I feel that most
  of the utils are for the administrator only, hence I've moved them into
  /usr/sbin .  This is in accordance of the fact that the manpages are in
  section 8... An exception is dirvish-locate, which can be useful for users,
  so that is in /usr/bin .

- The upstream INSTALL file is available as HOWTO.upstream, as it covers more
  than just installation; configuration is also covered.
