Re: Packaging new software


Good question, Patrick. All I know is that, just before I sent my application to the developers in January, see (1) and they decided to close the door, our English version and the French translation were accepted in the old way. As from January, we have to do the packaging ourselves. Although I am making progress, I will ask the MOTU guys if the completed translated versions (pdf) can be included in the original package.

Wouldn't the additional languages just fall under localized versions of
the overall package? What I mean is, would we have to create a separate
Software Center package for each language, or would the Software Center
automatically install the appropriate language based on your locale?

Have a great day.:)

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:
@ 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.
