Using dpgk -b with CVS sources
I am investigating the possibility to use debian package format for the
company I work for. We use CVS and I added a DEBIAN directory with a control
file in it for my project in CVS, I have added as well a top level Makefile
target 'dpkg' . This target creates all the dpkg-deb required directory
structure under a 'build' directory and runs dpkg -b build myproject-1.0 .
This works pretty well, but as part of my directory tree bulding I have to
carefully delete all CVS subdirectories under my build directory before
running dpkg, to avoid ending up with a .deb file full of CVS dirs.
Is there any way to tell dpkg to ignore CVS or any other file that is not
relevant at package time ? I am considering patching dpkg to pass options to
tar , in the same manner as we can pass compression level. Does this sound a
good idea ?
