SarvattDepends: libc6 (>= 2.4), libglib2.0-0 (>= 2.12.0) in the binary deb created from that, no libpurple0 or pidgin?00:52

james_wkamalnandan: correct, however "debuild -S" means "build a source package"10:28
james_wrun "debuild -uc -us" if you want a .deb10:28
* tuantub :-/10:29
kamalnandanwhats the diff between a source package and .deb package..?10:29
kamalnandanas far as i know, .deb package is meant for delivering to the consumer..its a kind of installer and the user doesnt need the source..10:30
kamalnandanand .deb shouldnt be containg the source..10:30
james_wa source package is what developers work with though10:30
james_wit's damn hard to make changes to a .deb10:30
james_wso we would with a source package that contains the source10:31
james_wthen we build that to produce binary packages that the user installs10:31
james_wa source package is either unpacked or packed10:31
james_wyou are working from an unpacked source package directory10:31
kamalnandanyes..so why would a developer need a source package..because developer anyway is having the source files..isnt it?..yes though unpacked..10:31
james_w"debuild -S" means pack this source package so that I can send it to someone else or to an archive10:32
kamalnandanbut one can easily pack the source file using "tar" and gzip10:32
james_w"debuild" means take this unpacked source package and build it to give the .debs10:32
james_wyeah, but we have a command to automate it10:32
kamalnandantar and gzip too are commands and not that lengthy..why make all that effort of going via ubuntu packaging process..10:33
james_wdo it with tar and gzip if you like10:34
james_wgiven that I do that operation many times a day I would rather just have a single command to do it10:34
kamalnandansorry..i am new to packaging as well..i am asking so many questions that would be "stupid" from an expert's viewpoint..10:35
james_wI just don't see why you are arguing that we should make people put *more* effort in :-)10:36
james_wit's the opposite of what people normally say about Ubuntu development10:36
kamalnandanI am saying this, because I have never done this..and I have been using tar and gzip so far..i dont have any experience in packaging..10:38
kamalnandani have been told to build an ubuntu package for a project..and I am trying to learn the basics first..infact, source packaging I was not really on my agenda(as per my knowledge)..i had just assumed that I have to package a set of binaries and shared objects so that when the package gets installed, the user can run the program..10:40
kamalnandanbut now it seems much more is implied in packaging..10:40
kamalnandannevertheless..its going on getting interesting..and I think I would be able to appreciate the process more when I have a better understanding of the same..10:41

dmentrejames_w: ocaml-gettext is in round 4, libvirt in round3. Depedencies of libvirt must have changed with 0.6 version11:00
dmentrejames_w: I suggest to move libvirt in round 5. I'll check which packages depend on libvirt11:02
dmentrejames_w: ok, virt-top (currently in round 5) depends on libvirt so move virt-top to round 611:06
dmentrejames_w: oops, sorry. You said *>* 0.3.2-2!!11:09
dmentreI'll ask debian developers11:09
dmentreIn the meantime, we can drop libvirt and virt-top. As far as I know, no other packages depend on them.11:11

arandSo, I'm trying to patch goffice, and apparently it has no patch system in use, not even a patching entry in debian/rules, I have the thing from the packaging wiki that should be added to the rules file to allow stand-alone patch-system-less patches, now I wonder, where and how should I add it? I'm assuming the order in the rules file matters.13:52

arandIs there anyplace else I could get some answers to my patching woes?14:27
geserarand: if the source package doesn't use a patch system, patch directly14:31
arandgeser: so just honk and drive without no stand-alone .patch files?14:32
arandgeser: Since in reading the packaging guide they still seem to recommed using the simple .patch + rules file entry patching scheme, even if the package does not use a patching system, but that does simplyfiy things a lot, so it think I will take you advice ;)14:34

AnAntgeser: is that needed if he doesn't use --lp ?20:41
rippsgeser: what level of acces do I want?20:41
geserAnAnt: looks like, the script uses the LP API to fetch some data about a source package (version, component) or uses it to check if one needs sponsorship even when one mails the report20:43
AnAntoh yes20:43
geserripps: write public (e.g. for filing sync requests)20:43
AnAntgeser: I see in the changelog something about checking if someone needs sponsorship20:43
rippsgeser: so, "change non-private data"20:43
geserripps: yes20:44
AnAntbut why do this check if the user explicitly specified -s ?20:44
geserAnAnt: yes, I don't know if there is way to do it without using LP API or screen-scraping LP pages (which is also bad)20:45
rippsgeser AnAnt: xvattr doesn't appear to exist in debian20:45
geserAnAnt: I plan to look at the script to rewrite some parts and see if it's possible to make it less dependend on the LP API if one doesn't use the --lp switch20:45
