I've rebuilt packages for the latest release (0.19.1). The .dsc is at
I've also futzed around with my scripts for building .debs for the
ceph.newdream.net repository (now using pbuilder, reprepro). I suspect
I'm not quite doing the right thing wrt package versions for the different
distributions (I'm appending something like ~bpo50+1 for lenny .deb,
etc.), but for now at least it works well enough for the separate
repository. And I'm not sure it's that important from the perspective of
getting the packages in sid anyway.
There is also a ceph-kclient package with the source code for the kernel
As I understand it there is some make-kpkg magic that is supposed to build
it automagically (if it's properly packaged) but I haven't found any good
documentation on how that should be done for standalone modules.
I'm behind on this, but I hope to look again deeper by Monday evening.
Reviewing now. Initial thoughts:
* Your diff.gz is empty. I guess that's better than making this a native
package, but other maintainers will prefer that the debian directory be
added during in the diff.gz. I think the ftpmasters might find your way a
* You should remove the commented-out dh_* lines in debian/rules.
Your move_dbg_files script -- could be replaced by more careful use of
dh_strip? Check out the --dbg-packages=package option described in "man
dh_strip". (Also, if you feel like it, you could try debhelper 7, but
that's no big deal.)
I'm still waiting for my build to finish. I hope that when it does and I
have it installed, it will be clear how to use it so that I can easily
test if it works as advertised. (-:
There are a lot of shared libraries here -- I hope you'll maintain their
ABI stably and not cause too much churn.
Sorry to take so long on this. Let me know regarding the above comments!
