After you have successfully built the package with dpkg-buildpackage and made sure it is lintian clean, checked with pbuilder if all depencies are added to debian/control and send an ITP, it is time to upload it to the debian gitlab service (Salsa.debian.org).
For that you will need to create a new dsc file in a temporary directory, so that all of your changes are listed in the git history.
A repo in your namespace is used instead ofruby-team at salsa.
The same problem is described at the ruby-team packaging page:
It might be clearer there.
In short you run:
to create an ssh-key, and upload the public key, which ends with .pub. If you have picked a custom name you can add the following to ~/.ssh/config (if it does not exist yet just create the file):
host salsa.debian.org User git PreferredAuthentications publickey IdentityFile ~/.ssh/custom_name_gitlab_rsa
Simply replace the path to your key in the last line.
First install git-buildpackage
apt-get install git-buildpackage
is used as the build directory for the package devise. After running dpkg-buildpackage the directory should look like this: ls ~/Build/diaspora
$ ls devise-2.1.2.gem ruby-devise-2.1.2 ruby-devise_2.1.2-1.debian.tar.gz ruby-devise_2.1.2-1_i386.changes devise-2.1.2.tar.gz ruby-devise_2.1.2-1_all.deb ruby-devise_2.1.2-1.dsc
Create a directory to save all of your earlier work:
mkdir old_build_devise mv * old_build_devise
Create a directory for the git repo you will use for gitlab. Use the correct Debian name:
Go to a temporary folder and get a new dsc file. This will be imported from the new ruby-devise directory. By that all changes will be added to the history of git.
cd ~/Tmp gem2deb devise
cd ~/Build/diaspora/ruby-devise gbp import-dsc --author-is-committer --pristine-tar ~/Tmp/ruby-devise_2.1.2-1.dsc
This will create a folder named ruby-devise, which actually is a git repo. If you forget to add --pristine-tar you will have to start from scratch.
Go to your old build directory:
cd ~/Build/diaspora/old_build_devise/ruby-devise-2.1.2/ fakeroot debian/rules clean
~> 3.1.0 Go to the directory created by gbp import-dsc and copy all files you changed in the original build directory to the debian directory:
cd ~/Build/diaspora/ruby-devise/ruby-devise/debian cp ~/Build/diaspora/old_build_devise/ruby-devise-2.1.2/debian/* .
Add the changes to git and commit them:
git add changelog control copyright git commit -m "adding changelog control copyright similarly for all other changed files
This was very confusing. Keep in mind that you have three folders:
- your old build folder where your changes are stored
- one temporary folder to git-import-dsc an unchanged dsc file from
- the new folder which will be used as the git repo for gitlab.
From the new folder you run gbp import-dsc --author-is-committer --pristine-tar to import an unchanged dsc file from the temporary folder. You copy the changed files in debian folder (like changelog, control and copyright) from the old build-folder. Then commit them. Now all of your changes are stored in git history.
git remote add
Create a repository add the team site via webinterface. Add it as remote to your git repo:
git remote add origin email@example.com:<your salsa username>/ruby-devise.git
Remove the debian tag:
to list it and
git tag -d debian/2.1.2-1
to remove it (2.1.2-1 in this case. Use what git tag shows you)
push the changes to the git-repo at gitorius/debian-diaspora
git push -u --all --follow-tags
Note: To build your package from the git repo, use gbp buildpackage command.
