We package VoIP software for Debian
- TODO: fill in interesting ITPs and such
Packages are maintained in Git using simple quilt patches.
First, check out:
gbp clone ssh://anonscm.debian.org/git/pkg-voip/PACKAGE cd PACKAGE git branch pristine-tar origin/pristine-tar
If you don't have a write-access to the repository, use the following instead:
gbp clone git://anonscm.debian.org/pkg-voip/PACKAGE
If you want to push later, set the url or pushurl for the remote "origin" later to the above ssh URL.
Next build it. You should probably use git-buildpackage (gbp):
TODO: complete instructions
Instructions here are for packages where upstream is in the form of a tarball.
You should start by getting a tarball. This is best done using uscan (TODO: document? link?). Make sure it is not in the current directory. Make sure that the working copy is clean: no uncommitted changes.
gbp import-orig --pristine-tar ../path/to/tarball.orig.tar.gz
Again, instructions for a repository base on tarballs.
mkdir PACKAGE cd PACKAGE git init gbp import-orig --pristine-tar ../path/to/tarball.orig.tar.gz
Note: do this after checking that the build works well. The following steps need to be done by the DD / DM uploading the package.
Update the changelog. Normally just use:
gbp dch -caR
This creates an extra commit with the up-to-date changelog.
Build and tag (please sign tags):
gbp buildpackage --git-pbuilder --git-tag --git-sign-tags
Alternatively, build and tag later when you're happy with the result:
gbp buildpackage --git-pbuilder gbp buildpackage --git-tag-only --git-sign-tags
This produces an unsigned changes file. Now you need to sign it. Copy the path to the path to the changes file file from the output of gbp buildpackage for the next command.
And upload it:
Now wait. Don't push your changes yet. Wait for the confirmation that the package has been accepted to Unstable, New queue, or whereever you upoaded it to. Only then push your changes.
If you have no new upstream, no need to push upstream and pristine-tar (but it's probably harmless).
git push --follow-tags origin master upstream pristine-tar
Add new repository on git.debian.org
