getting my feet wet
I've been reading docs and more docs for the past day and a half. I
think I am closer to understanding how debian packaging works and how
launchpad can provide ppa's to users.
I am slow, however, and was wondering if I could ask here for some
advice and help.
I'd like to turn this package into a PPA:
It compiles clean on ubuntu and should be rather simple to turn into
a PPA (I think).
I know all the dependencies for building and using it. They are all
normal ubuntu packages.
I should only have to modify the Makefile so that it installs in /usr
instead of /usr/local
I'd also need to rename the .pc file so that it doesn't conflict with
How would you recommend I go about doing this?
Can I use bzr or bzr-builder to clone the git and apply a patch?
What about a recipe for automatically creating the ppa?
Any tips would be helpful. There seems to be about a million
different options to do this.
