Injecting new package

Remember to substitute "certik-guest" with your alioth account name.

using svn-inject

svn-inject -o pypar2_1.4-1.dsc svn+ssh://certik-guest@svn.debian.org/svn/python-apps/packages/

manually

svn mkdir svn+ssh://certik-guest@svn.debian.org/svn/python-apps/packages/mayavi2
svn mkdir svn+ssh://certik-guest@svn.debian.org/svn/python-apps/packages/mayavi2/trunk
svn co svn+ssh://certik-guest@svn.debian.org/svn/python-apps/packages/mayavi2/trunk mayavi2
cd mayavi2

Put your debian directory here and all the other files

mkdir debian   # put other files in there
svn add debian
svn propset mergeWithUpstream 1 debian
svn ci

Building the package

svn co svn+ssh://certik-guest@svn.debian.org/svn/python-apps/packages/mayavi2/trunk mayavi2
cd mayavi2

Get the orig tarball and put it to ../tarballs. Then

svn-buildpackage -rfakeroot

Hint: put

alias svn-b='svn-buildpackage -rfakeroot --svn-ignore-new  -uc -us'

into your ~/.bashrc and use the svn-b command to build the package with local modification and without signing, to test, that everything works, before a commit.

How to get the tarball with upstream sources?

If the package uses the watch file:

uscan --force-download --rename

Some packages need to great the DFSG tarball:

debian/rules get-orig-tarball

see debian/rules for details, usually it will download the original upstream tar.gz from the web, unpack it, deletes non-free stuff and pack it again.
