Uploading the manual

If you don't have an svn checkout already:

svn checkout svn+ssh://yourlogin@svn.debian.org/svn/d-i/trunk/manual
cd manual

otherwise make sure you have the latest version:

svn up

make sure your pbuilder is up to date:

sudo pbuilder update

or build one if you don't have one already:

sudo apt-get install pbuilder
sudo pbuilder create

try to build (to make it faster we here use a box with 24 cores):

DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS=parallel=24 pdebuild

mark the release changelog entry, using the date of the day as package version (e.g. 20160629):

dch -v 20160629
dch -r

proofread and commit (note the commit id, e.g. 12345):

svn diff
svn commit -m upload

make a clean build:

svn export . /tmp/manual
cd /tmp/manual
DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS=parallel=24 pdebuild

sign the .changes, upload. When it gets ACCEPTed, tag the version:

svn cp svn+ssh://yourlogin@svn.debian.org/svn/d-i/trunk/manual@12345 svn+ssh://yourlogin@svn.debian.org/svn/d-i/tags/manual/20160629
