copycom2deb - Create Debian packages for the Copy client agent

Copy is a new cloud storage solution similar to Dropbox. They have a better price model, allowing you to use 250GB of storage for 99$ per year. The free account starts with 5GB and you can get a few extra GB by promoting the service. You get client agents for most operating systems, including Linux.

Barracuda only supplies Linux users with a simple tgz installer. This installer is perfectly working, but I wanted to install and update software with dpkg. So I hacked a little script to download the current version of the client agent and build a Debian package from the tgz.

You can find the script on GitHub:
