Packages containing debugging symbols

Registered by Sergey "Shnatsel" Davidoff on 2011-10-30

There's a good tradition of shipping debugging symbols for apps in appname-dbg packages.
We should pick it up because it can be extremely useful for debugging.

Whiteboard

CMake builds unstripped executables, they're stripped by dh_strip at package build time.

Docs:
 * http://wiki.debian.org/DebugPackage
 * http://wiki.maemo.org/Documentation/Maemo_5_Developer_Guide/Kernel_and_Debugging_Guide

Simple example: lp:~elementary-os/cerbere/deb-packaging
Complex example: lp:~elementary-os/beat-box/deb-packaging

Simple case is automated, you can find the script to add a -dbg package in lp:~elementary-os/elementaryos/packaging-scripts
