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. === FTBFS, a new UDD cgi script ===
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)
A long time ago, I created a small page to track the current packages that FTBFS on ppc64el. It also showed if a package only FTBFS on ppc64el, or if it FTBFS on other arches as well.
Line 25: Line 24:
Here are some examples:
{{{
Vcs-Browser: http://ikiwiki.info/cgi-bin/viewvc.cgi/trunk/?root=ikiwiki
Vcs-Svn: svn://svn.kitenet.net/ikiwiki/trunk
}}}
Since last week, this page has been available as a [[https://udd.debian.org/cgi-bin/ftbfs.cgi|UDD cgi script]]
 * it's quite faster,
 * and also gives results for any supported architecture (not only ppc64el)
Line 31: Line 28:
This was implemented in dpkg 1.14.6. Thanks to Mattia Rizzolo for the review and to Nyov for the python3-conversion.
Line 33: Line 30:
=== dpkg-buildpackage uses fakeroot by default === -- Erwan Prioul <erwan@linux.ibm.com>
Line 35: Line 32:
You don't need to specify '-rfakeroot' any more, if you are not running as root, and fakeroot is present it will be used automatically. === Debian CI pipeline ===
Line 37: Line 34:
This was implemented in dpkg 1.14.7. On behalf the salsa-ci-team we would like to spread the word about the Continuous Integration pipeline we have created for Debian contributors.
Line 39: Line 36:
=== Add your news here === The main idea is to have faster feedback when you are working in a package if
it has the quality needed to be part of the Debian archive. The tests we got
working so far, are the following:

 * Building the package from the source (only gbp is supported for now)
 * Lintian check
 * Reproducible build (Using reprotest)
 * piuparts
 * Autopkgtest

Please follow the [[https://salsa.debian.org/salsa-ci-team/pipeline/blob/master/README.md|README]] to enable CI in your packages.

Debian CI pipeline

On behalf the salsa-ci-team we would like to spread the word about the Continuous Integration pipeline we have created for Debian contributors.

The main idea is to have faster feedback when you are working in a package if it has the quality needed to be part of the Debian archive. The tests we got working so far, are the following:

  • Building the package from the source (only gbp is supported for now)
  • Lintian check
  • Reproducible build (Using reprotest)
  • piuparts
  • Autopkgtest

Please follow the README to enable CI in your packages.
