I hope this question isn't too dumb for this forum
I made a theme for Winterboard and I want my friends to download it from my myrepospace repo in order to have a look at it.
On my iPhone, this obviously works fine. However, I don't get it how to upload it right on the repo, so that it's defined as a theme and cydia "knows" where to put the folders on the downloading iPhone.
I'm using an iPhone 4s with iOS7.
google wasn't helpful at all...so I hope you guys have some suggestions for me?

One has to create a .deb (DEBIAN) file which contains all the package and this one specific control file. .deb is what you upload to the repo.
Thanks for nothing^^

During the creation of the deb package, there is a file by the name of control (no file extension - make/edit with any text editor).
This file is located inside a folder named DEBIAN
This file contains all of the information about the package, which is then used by Cydia and/or the repo to determine how the package is classified.
