Re: Redesign metapackage creation for Debian Blends

Hello Andreas,

I couldn't checkout from:

 debcheckout blends-dev

It dumps as output:

declared svn repository at svn://svn.debian.org/blends/blends/trunk/blends/
svn co svn://svn.debian.org/blends/blends/trunk/blends/ blends-dev ...
svn: URL 'svn://svn.debian.org/blends/blends/trunk/blends' doesn't exist
checkout failed (the command above returned a non-zero exit code)

I use the latest stable Debian 6.0.7 and it has as a stable latest version of blends-dev the 0.6.15
As i saw here : http://lists.debian.org/debian-blends/2012/11/msg00051.html ,  from blends version 0.6.15 to 0.6.16 the Vcs changed from Svn to Git, so I suppose the Svn repo does not exist anymore that's why the debchekout of blends-dev 0.6.15 does not work?

I downloaded the source code of blend from git : git://git.debian.org/git/blends/blends.git where the latest tag is : . The code of blends-dev is under the directory blends/devtools? So the blend-gen-control perl script  is the one that should be replaced with a totally new python design?

Kind regards

Sounds good.

The best source of information is currently


BTW, the source of this document is inside the blends-dev package source
which you can check out from Vcs using:

     debcheckout blends-dev

The Perl part of this code should be replaced in the GSoC project by a
totally new design based on UDD queries rather than parsing Packages

Hope this helps for the moment and I'd be happy to mentor you.  Feel free
to ask more detailed questions here on this list.

Kind regards
