Ok, I uploaded my first package from the list of ITPs that I posted (pd-*). Once I get this one thru the whole process, I'll fix whatever needs fixing and upload the rest.

Then I'll remove the 'debian' folder from the upstream SVN so that the git.debian.org one becomes canonical.


It seems you've put everything into the master branch. This is bad - and becomes tricky to clean up later, so much better if you do it properly from the beginning:

  1. Take your upstream hat on
  2. Release a tarball (with debian subdir stripped)
  3. Take your Debian distributor hat on
  4. Rename tarball to LOWERCASE-UPSTREAM-PROJECT_VERSION.orig.tar.gz
  6. Enter that folder
  7. Initialize git: git init
  8. Import renamed tarball:
     git-import-orig --pristine-tar --sign-tags 
  9. Add debian subdir
 10. create empty git at Alioth...
 11. push all local data: git push --all; git push --tags

Hope that helps :-)
