I had a (quick) look at Thiagos packaging and while the package
builds somehow there are several lintian warnings. If you try
lintian -i *.dsc *.deb
you get explanations and several of these are relatively easy to
fix. An absolute no go is the missing copyright information which
definitely needs fixing. Please try to work down the list of
lintian problems and feel free to ask for any help if something
BTW, it might make sense to join a packaging team on alioth
(python-modules-team ??) and use their SVN for the packaging stuff.
This enables potential helpers for packaging to commit changes
Hope this helps for the moment
I fixed some of lintian problems. One of the problems that remains is:
W: libsigar: package-installs-python-pyc usr/lib/python2.6/dist-packages/sigar.pyc
N: Compiled python source files should not be included in the package.
N: These files should be removed from the package and created at package
N: installation time in the postinst.
N: Severity: normal, Certainty: certain
How can I only compile in installation time? I'm using this command in rule file to install the files:
cd $(CURDIR)/bindings/python && python setup.py install --install-layout=deb --root=$(CURDIR)/debian/$(PACKAGE)
