pd-cyclone is a long-form dh package that is a wrapper to a very
complicated Make build system. pd-cxc is in
git.debian.org/pkg-multimedia. It is a library without depends that are new packages. It builds on my i386, but it did not build on the launchpad amd64 build machine, it died on this error, which has stumped

It looks odd to me that you use no debhelper tools in the binary-arch
target - only in the binary-indep one.

Thanks, that was the key. This now builds on i386 and amd64 and is
ready to go.

The git repository is not fixed.

I am not sure I understand. What I see on git.debian.org is the same as what I have on my machine, and I used git-buildpackage to make the source package
to submit to Launchpad:


Oh it was fixed, my bad. But there is a large commit that changes many
things at once (d634143), and the change was hidden there.

Also, why do you use long-form debhelper?

Because I didn't see a way to do it with short-form. This library has a very elaborate build system that I've tried for years to figure out. Instead I've found the best way is to wrap it into something more understandable,
and long-form seemed the easiest way to do that.

Indeed, the makefile is quite convoluted. It also can't handle it when
the user passes CFLAGS and other variables. Also, it sets -j4

On further inspection, the package seems to bundle the pddp source.
Are riddle, sickle and ViCious more code copies? We should not use
code copies. We need to avoid using them.

This is how cyclone is released.  The code in 'pddp', 'riddle', and
'ViCious' are unused.  The 'pddp' code shared some code with pd-pddp,
but not all. The code in 'sickle' is fully part of pd-cyclone and used.


I am open to changing it to short-form, but I don't see a clear way to do it

I don't really prefer short form, but it is just a matter of using
override_dh_foo targets.

It looks like it's going to be a busy week. I'll continue checking pd
packages (hopefully) late next week.

No problem, thanks for uploading all these packages!
