ScottSanbarjames_w:  thanks so much for going to the trouble of downloading and trying to build my package.  I will first look into missing files that did not make it into bazaar because of my .bzrignore (you can look at that as well, if you so desire, to see what i have on my PC that is not in bazaar).  I will then start looking into my build environment to see how it might differ.00:12
ScottSanbarmwhudson: My next step in the Ubuntu tutorial I am following is to go on to using pbuilder, but I was trying to learn and get working things with debuild as a learning exercise.  Thanks for your insight, and I will definitely do that as I progress in my learning exercise, but still want to try and figure out what is going on with debuild for now to understand, unless it just gets to be a total drag.00:14
mwhudsonScottSanbar: well, it's very likely what james_w says, there is something about your environment that is preventing your build from working00:15
ScottSanbarmwhudson:  OK, thanks - I will try to track that down - does using pbuilder negate that problem partially or completely?00:15
ScottSanbarmwhudson:  OK, great - I have already set up chroot and all that in preparation for pbuilder (I think that is what all that effort was for, right?)00:16
mwhudsonScottSanbar: it could certainly be related, i don't know which tutorial you're following :-)00:17
mwhudsonpbuilder uses a chroot, for sure00:17
ScottSanbarmwhudson:  I am following the Ubuntu Packaging Wiki:  https://wiki.ubuntu.com/PackagingGuide/Complete00:18
ScottSanbarmwhudson:  I hope it is leading me in the right direction ... ;)00:18
mwhudsoni'd hope it is too :-)00:19
ScottSanbarmwhudson:  Also, I have looked at a broad variety of sites and tutorials, etc. including many of the Gnu Autotools tutorials and manuals and have become aware of Debian sites I am now going to start reading.00:20
ScottSanbarmwhudson:  My build environment was not created from the Ubuntu Wiki, but from a Hello, World example from the Gnu Automake documentation, for instance.00:20
mwhudsonScottSanbar: well, now you're getting beyond what I know about00:22
* mwhudson just packages python stuff00:22
ScottSanbarmwhudson: Yes, I have seen several sites and tutorials on Python packaging - my current package started as a simple C hello world, and morphed into a C++ random conversation app.  My goal is to learn as much as I can from the ground up.00:23
ScottSanbarmwhudson:  The python packaging seems to have its own twists and turns, I guess.  I want to learn some python, so I guess I will eventually get into that, assuming I do well on this other stuff00:25
cheakoHello, again!  I hope I'm not in here so often that you'd remember.  "An email message was sent to cheako@technofoundry.com. Please follow the instructions on that message to complete the merge."  I remember having that address in like 2002, yeah that thing happens with a few airplanes around the time I had that email address.  Question, what can I do now?01:08
cheakoaccount deactivated.  I guess it would be.01:13
cheakoI don't even know what password it would have been, though I have some guesses.01:13
cheakosame for cheako911 -> cheako911@yahoo.com  and  cheako -> cheako@technofoundry.com01:18
cheakoWhat I want is just one account "cheako".  I'm not at all interested in cheako911 and mmestnik is only kinda belonging to me.  I don't think I want mmestnik to be found as a username.01:19
StevenKcheako: All three can merged into one account01:21
cheakoStevenK: I guess.  I'd like to free cheako911 for use by someone else.  Though the issue now is that I don't have the email addresses for them and they are deactivated.01:43

exarkunPeople are complaining that this page is confusing, <https://code.launchpad.net/pyflakes>, because the actual pyflakes source is hosted at <https://code.launchpad.net/divmod.org>.11:28
exarkunSomeone asked for a pointer to the actual code, but as far as I can tell, there's no way to add custom text to <https://code.launchpad.net/pyflakes>.  Is that right?11:28
wgrantexarkun: Huh, that really shouldn't all be one project.11:29
wgrantdivmod.org should be a project group containing pyflakes etc.11:29
exarkunwgrant: Yea, but it is, and I'm not going to do anything about it any time soon, so...11:29
wgrantOoh, I see it's all one huge branch.11:30
wgrantThat is a little unfortunate.11:30
wgrantYou can see on a page like https://code.launchpad.net/git that we do mention external hosting if the development focus is an import.11:30
wgrantBut we have no way to handle the case where the code is in another Launchpad project, because that realllly breaks our modeling.11:31
diwicHi! I'm building a daily recipe for two different versions (Maverick and Natty, planning on adding Oneiric). How do I detect, inside debian/rules, whether this is building for Maverick or Natty? (I need to apply different patches depending on version)11:31
geserI'm not sure you can. You will probably need two recipes: one for natty and one for maverick11:37
diwicgeser, which pulls in two different branches? I was hoping something like /etc/issue would work11:38
diwicgeser, or I could resort to detect from "pkg-config --modversion <some library>" that I know changes11:40
diwicbut the latter feels ugly.11:40
geserperhaps using "lsb_release -sc" is enough, but I don't know how reliable that is for recipe builds11:45
diwicgeser, come to think of it, it's not in the actual recipe I need it, but when the package compiles (which is a normal ppa build)11:46
gesermight work there too11:48
diwicgeser, thanks for the "lsb_release -sc" tip, didn't know that command. I think it should work11:49
geseras I never used recipes: doesn't the debian/changelog also contain the distribution the source package is targeted for?11:49
diwicgeser, no, the recipe doesn't patch the changelog and the release mismatch is ignored later11:50
wgrantdiwic: Recipe builds add a new changelog entry targeted to the correct release.11:51

ScottSanbarHi, All.  I solved my problem with the recipe for my package (now renamed to a unique name (randconverse) and put properly in my +junk area on launchpad13:20
ScottSanbarIn order to get it to work, i had to add several files (configure, install-sh, debcomp, missing, aclocal.m4).  Now it builds in the recipe based off of a autotools build environment built from scratch, a customized dh_make debian subdirectory template and a package built using make distclean for the .orig.tar.gz and debuild.  The question I have is that I do not see all these files in other packages (like Gnu Hello) on Launchpad.  Is13:26

LaibschI have a question for clarification.  Am I right that packaging work in Debian does not count towards Launchpad karma? I think this used to be different.  I'd say it's a bit unfair to people like me who believe that it's better to do the packaging in Debian than Ubuntu itself if possible (I never even got upload rights to Ubuntu)19:08
LaibschI provide lots of patches and debdiffs as well but it seems that other people (those who sponsor the uploads) then get the credits :-(  Is that so?19:10
