 j4v4m4n, but does Debian and Ubuntu packaging differ a lot?
                                        [20:49]
 ideas remain same, but actual packages differ  [20:50]

 folks thanks for joining in!
 those who don't have a debian box, please send me a private message
                                        [21:01]
 lets wait 5 minutes for people to settle in  [21:04]
 I guess everyone here would have installed software in windows
                                        [21:05]
 Not too much of a crowd here, i guess  [21:06]
 arvind_khadri: lets start
 \msg j4v4m4n i will join back in few minutes, need to reboot
                                        [21:07]
*** vaamarnath (73f8cb82@ircip1.mibbit.com) has quit: Quit:
    http://www.mibbit.com ajax IRC Client
 arvind_khadri: I normally don't count numbers
 Am sorry, if I offended you
 so how gnu/linux differs from windows when installing software?
                                        [21:08]
 arvind_khadri: not at all
 arvind_khadri: I keep hearing that always :)
 :) lesser the number, the better it is, i feel
 people tend to gaugue success by numbers, I don't  [21:09]
 We don't need to go search for a specific software any where else we
      can search in the distributions repository for that software and
      install it
 vasudev: good, but if it is not in the repository?  [21:10]
 compile the package
 well we need to download the source of the package and compile i
 or search for the PPA
 we build it from source then
 *it
 is that straight forward and easy?
 no :/  [21:11]
 no we need to look for dependecies
 so how to make it easier?
 building a package of that source and let package manager handle the
      dependencies  [21:12]
 doesnt sound easier to me ;)
*** vaamarnath (73f8cb82@ircip3.mibbit.com) has joined channel #debian-in
 not for a one time install
 vasudev: what is the source is not in the repo
 wat if*
 get it from the softwares site  [21:13]
 :-)
 wouldn't it be easier to get it packaged?
 but if there is no package?
 build the package from the source and submit it to upstream ;)
 there are people who are good at packaging  [21:14]
 just request for a package
 in debian it is called RFP
 okay, thanks. that was the tutorial? ;)
 oh  [21:15]
 morphium: that I, think is the backup tutorial
 morphium: the plan B
 well, that is not going to be useful if you want the package today
*** vaamarnath (73f8cb82@ircip3.mibbit.com) has quit: 
 the point is we need more people to package software  [21:16]
 if i'm not wrong there is one software tool which can build package
      for ur system but forgot its name
 so here we are trying to help those who can't build packages
 of course it would help us too
 we will start with a sample package  [21:17]
 but first lets see how to request it
*** Vivek (~Obadiah@static-mum-59.181.110.41.mtnl.net.in) has quit: Ping
    timeout: 480 seconds  [21:18]
 many times we are able to  "make deb" in the source and get a
        debian package ready am I right?
 go to wnpp.debian.net  [21:19]
 that is if you are lucky :)
 wnpp stands for work needing and prospective packages
 look at any one RFP listed there  [21:20]
*** pavi (~pavi@117.204.65.246) has joined channel #debian-in  [21:21]
 hi j4v4m4n :)
 everyone got an RFP page?
 pavi: heya
 j4v4m4n, which part of the packaging are you in now ?  [21:22]
 yup got it
 pavi: you can skip to #debian-in-mentors
 yes  [21:23]
*** dk (~dk@117.192.247.143) has joined channel #debian-in
*** kart_ (~kartik@122.169.83.52) has quit: Remote host closed the connection
 this channel is for newbies to packaging, if you have some

*** dk (~dk@117.192.247.143) is now known as deepak
*** kart_ (~kartik@122.169.83.52) has joined channel #debian-in
 yes got it..
 now we want to package lekhonee-gnome  [21:24]
 it is already in debian, but assume it is not there for this
      tutorial
 prepare a text file with content similar to RFP you just saw  [21:25]
 and post it to paste.debian.net  [21:26]
 is this clear?
*** Obadiah (~Obadiah@static-mum-59.181.110.41.mtnl.net.in) has joined channel
    #debian-in  [21:27]
 arvind_khadri: sachith kamathln_away vasudev morphium clear?
 no.. confused..  [21:28]
 j4v4m4n: i didn't find lekhonee-gnome in the wnpp.debian.net
 dunno what this has to do with creating packages
 j4v4m4n: yeah
 i too didn't find it  [21:29]
 j4v4m4n: havee to be away most of the times :(
 ok let me explain it again
*** arvind_k (~arvind@117.192.205.142) has joined channel #debian-in
 vasudev: i think that is coz its already packaged  [21:30]
 when a software is not available in debian it will come up in wnpp
      first
*** sana (~sana@59.164.122.136) has joined channel #debian-in
 ok..
 now we want to package lekhonee-gnome today
*** Obadiah (~Obadiah@static-mum-59.181.110.41.mtnl.net.in) has quit:   [21:31]
 so it has to be in wnpp
 i cant find it in the wnpp
 we won't add it to wnpp
 but we will do it for practice
 so just create a text file and create content that should be there
      in an RFP  [21:32]
 morphium: we have to collect details about a package before we start
 morphium: this exercise will help in that  [21:33]
 j4v4m4n: bit confused here what details should we include in the
      text file?
 assume you are going to file an RFP for lekhonee-gnome
*** Shravan (~shravan@220.225.67.36) has joined channel #debian-in
 ok
 hi
 those details should be in the text file  [21:34]
 Shravan: hi

 j4v4m4n: What is the significance of standards-version? And
         what value should that have?  [23:30]
 tvmanukrishnan1: it is version of debian policy
 tvmanukrishnan1: search net for debian policy and look at the bottom

 j4v4m4 : SMK ran the ./configure file and whenever the unmet
      dependency error came he installed that dependency until a clean
      make file was created  [23:54]
 jishnu7: run apt-get install Vala Glib2 libxml libsoup
      gtksourceview2 gtkspell2 webkitgtk gee-1.0
 Shravan: ok
 SMK: create the control file
 j4v4m4n, all those are not found   [23:55]
 jishnu7: see if you can insatall all the packages
 tvmanukrishnan1: same for you
 jishnu7: :(
 another ap-get is running... :(

      installed
 oh!
 SMK: help jishnu7 to find actual package names
 SMK, ping  [23:56]

                                        [23:57]
 run ./configure.  Whatever unmet dependency error pops up, search for
      the package in the synaptic package manager
 for every search string, you will get a lot of packages, i found that
      the lib*-dev packages are the actual ones  [23:58]
 SMK, configure: error: no acceptable C compiler found in $PATH
 SMK: if something is already mentioned in README or website you
      don't have to wait for ./configure to give error

 tvmanukrishnan1 : ohh very sorry your correct i did not see they both have different licenses
* Shravan is sleepy
 yes tvmanukrinshan1 your copyright file is correct
 jishnu7 : please refer to tvmanukrishnan1 copyright file and make the minor changes required
 Shravan: but I didn't include the copyright names as I don't know that. So, is that okay?
 backpain has started for me. Shall we continue tomorrow?
 tvmanukrishnan : the name is jishnu i think
* arvind_khadri (~arvind@117.192.193.157) has joined #debian-in
 jishnu : you can only name for the debian/* file
 s
 jishnu : The other files you have keep the copyright of the author
 jishnu , tvmanukrishnan : i think the author for the files except the files inside debian directory should be kushal das on;y
* sana (~sana@59.164.122.136) has left #debian-in (Ex-Chat)
 Shravan: I don't know the idividual file authors. So, should I check each file for the author name?
 Shravan: a coauthor too for some files.  troorl
 tvmanukrishan1 : yes you will need to check individual files if they have different authors :)
 Shravan, what abt this one http://paste.debian.net/96448/ ?
tvmanukrishnan1> Shravan: anyway to list them all as we did for the license? Is lazy to check all files...
 jishnu7 : correct now you have to add the Copyright field above the license field with the name of the author who wrote it
 Shravan: Shall we keep the rest for tomorrow? Has to get some sleep.
 jishnu7: not sleeping today?
 tvmanukrishnan1, need to wake up till 2am
 tvmanukrishnan1, need to create the ubuntu edition
 jishnu7: of what?
 i said na.. the ubuntu edition with all necessary utiities..
