There is already a debian package for the 2 or 3 packages I build, my work is no more than something like: git clone git://upstream.software/project && cd project git remote add debian git://git.debian.org/project git fetch debian git checkout -b snapshot git merge debian master git buildpackage Another point is that I'm working in a french educational ubuntu derivative and try to do things not to badly ;-) >> There are some items about which I would like to discuss, like: >> - automatic handling of debia/changelog > > git-dch? Yes, I'm looking at a good workflow to use it without storing it in my branches, this will permit to avoid conflicts during merge/rebase. When I'll merge a temporary branch of my doc, I'll explain a workflow with tags, git rev-log, git describe. >> - multi-distributions/version packaging (and avoiding conflicts) > > for neurodebian we use our backport-dsc > http://github.com/neurodebian/neurodebian/blob/HEAD/tools/backport-dsc > > NB yet to create a blog post on our set of little helpers, altogether > usually we just call nd_build4all X.dsc to get it built across releases > of debian and ubuntu... interested to learn more? Yes, of course, I'm looking at validation of packages, with piupart, CD building and automatic installation tests. >> - management of orig.tar.gz > > do you mean "filtering"? git-import-orig does that if you specify > 'filter' option in your debian/gbp.conf for the package Every example I saw use git-import-orig, what about using upstream VCS directly and not the tar.gz? > >> I already read some maling-list archives, mostly the "Patch mgmt >> workflow proposal" plus the links givent in the thread, but the >> conversations are way to high for me. > > thanks for the links -- I am yet to read them ;) decided to reply > first Thanks. -- Daniel Dehennin Récupérer ma clef GPG: gpg --keyserver pgp.mit.edu --recv-keys 0x6A2540D1
