Re: [PPA canonical-qt5-edgers-qt5-daily] qtwebkit_5.0-1ubuntu2_source.changes rejected


I'm sorry you are having trouble with preparing a source package for
upload to your PPA. I know that there are a lot of details around
naming and versioning in creating proper deb packages and it took me a
while to learn as well.

However, emailing this list with your current attitude/tone is not
going to get you any help. I suggest you try to reformulate your mail
in the form of a question that we on the launchpad-users list can help
with. Or, if you are unhappy with how a part of Launchpad works, I
suggest you draft a proposal for how to change it to be better (and be
prepared to provide developer time to work on the proposal). Be
forewarned though, a suggestion to disable the versioning checks for
PPA uploads needs to be accompanied by much better rationale than you
have provided so far.
