Debian Packaging Tutorial - by Phil Hands

London - Thursday 19th May 2011

Book you place now - places are limited!

Bookings now open at: http://www.ukuug.org/events/debian2011/

This is a one-day course that will assume very little Debian specific 
knowledge, although attendees should have some familiarity with the GNU/Linux 
shell command line. At the end of the course, each attendee will have 
installed a build environment on their laptop, and understand how to prepare 
packages suitable for upload to Debian, as well as how one prepares a local 
repository for use in addition to the Debian archive.


    * Preparing a package from unpackaged sources
    * Patching pre-existing packages
    * The various packaging helpers, and packaging standards
    * Packaging in conjunction with Version Control Systems
    * Building in a clean environment, with Pbuilder and chums
    * Setting up and maintaining a local repository, with authentication
    * How to find out about the other specialised packaging methods in use

Other subjects will be explored on the route taken as each attendee assembles 
a package building infrastructure on their machine, depending upon the 
particular interests of those attending (within reason).
