Line 7: Line 14:
For quite some time, we used to put the URL of the upstream project in the description itself. The recommended way is now to put it in the new "Homepage" field in the source stanza of the control file. The field will be propagated in the source package and in the binary packages (and thus will end up in Sources.gz and Packages.gz). It's possible to override the Homepage field for each a specific binary package by putting a second Homepage field in the corresponding binary stanza in the control file. === Example of news ===

This was implemented in dpkg 1.14.6. This is a sample news. Copy it and edit the title, content and signature... You can use [[https://www.debian.org|links]] like this. Put real news below this sample.

=== Vcs-* fields in debian/control === -- Your Name
Line 13: Line 20:
If your package is managed in a VCS, you should indicate where the repository is located in the {{{Vcs-<Kind>}}} field. If the content of the repository can be browsed on the web, you should indicate the URL in the {{{Vcs-Browser}}} field. === Python Packages: pep517 build tool ===
Line 15: Line 22:
The fields officially supported by dpkg are:
 * Vcs-Arch (arch and baz)
 * Vcs-Bzr (bazaar)
 * Vcs-Cvs
 * Vcs-Darcs
 * Vcs-Git
 * Vcs-Hg (Mercurial)
 * Vcs-Mtn (Monotone)
 * Vcs-Svn (Subversion)
The Python world has developed new standards for building and distributing modules. You'll often see a pyproject.toml file instead of a setup.py that you used to get. pybuild now has support for building these packages with the pyproject plugin. Build-Depend on `pybuild-plugin-pyproject` to use it. See [[https://lists.debian.org/msgid-search/20211217235213.ub56dvrdkiwgjcww@satie.tumbleweed.org.za|this message for details]] (note: at the time it was called the pep517 plugin, since renamed).
Line 25: Line 24:
Here are some examples:

Vcs-Svn: svn://svn.kitenet.net/ikiwiki/trunk
