Hi all. This is a script I wrote to auto-build .deb packages with the latest sources, or a specific (current) repo version. Haven't tested it thoroughly. So far it works just fine here. It lacks some things like dependency checking/installing and a few tests for things that could go wrong here and there. I won't go out of my way to test it on other boxes/systems/settings since it's a minor script (and it's original purpose was to make life simpler for those trying to figure out how to build a .deb package out of the hg sources), but if you find any problem with it I'll fix it right away. Also, I'm open to suggestions and improvements.
How to use: % cd picolisp-sources-dir # can be a repo or just an unpacked tgz % pil auto-backport.l if everything went well... % sudo dpkg -i picolisp_VERSION_ARCH.deb where VERSION = sources_version + repo_local_rev_num (if any) That'd be all. Hope it's useful.
