Re: Packaging new software


Hi all,
Thank you all for your reactions to my efforts to get the Dutch translation of Precise in USC. So far, what I have done is experimenting and learning to package using a personal PPA. As soon as I have figured it all out, I would like to package and upload to our manual team's PPA. Then I have to go through the MOTU process: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuDevelopment/NewPackages#Going_through_MOTU. @ Jonathan: I will most certainly need your help while trying to package the nl.pdf file. Packaging is a complicated process. I am learning by trial and error. Thanks for your offer to help me. @Carsten: the problem is not to build the pdf file from translations (if that is what you mean by "translations were built automatically"), but the packaging of the manual-translation.pdf.
Will be continued ;)

Is there some reason we can't do something like

cd ~/Projects/ubuntu-manual-saucy make make package

and have a script create the relevant packages for all currently
supported languages of the Ubuntu Manual, automatically?
The only reason at the moment is because no one's taken the time
to learn how to do this.
If I remember correctly, there was a build server [1], where all the
translations were build automatically. So maybe we can reactivate this
server again?

Greetings, Carsten
