2. What is the purpose of the hwpack.deb that is mentioned in places?
this is scotts baby i think. personally i am fine without a hwpack.deb. I think the idea was that configs etc. like apt source lines accompanying the hwpack could be shipped in there. Personally I think its good enough to start with this meta info being optionally in the tarballs somewhere.
This was my idea. It was to put everything about the hardware pack in a deb, and install it first. On second thought, it seems overkill, and it should probably be scrubbed from the spec.
