packaging-manual - Debian Packaging Manual
packaging-manual (126.96.36.199) unstable; urgency=low
* AMENDMENT: bashism in Packaging Manual. Removed bash specific brace
expansion from an example in the manual. closes: BUG#14701
* AMENDMENT: Added a section about preserving time stamps to the bottom
of the binary package chapter. closes: BUG#15946
* AMENDMENT: Emphasize that all required targets for debian/rules should
be non-interactive, to facilitate auto compiles, and to ensure that it
is easy to reprduce the same binary package. The required targets, at
a minimum, are those called by dpkg-buildpackage. closes: BUG#17620.
* AMENDMENT: s/ina/in a/. closes: BUG#22007
* Fixed a typo: dpkg-shlibs => dpkg-shlibdeps. closes: BUG#25573
* Make the package optional, not extra.
* Re did the SGML markup. Normalized the document, and undid the omitted
and shor tags. Personally, I use too many DTD's in real life to be so
conversant with each one to be clever with tag omissions, and, since
I have a smart editor, omitting tags does not buy one much. In the
process, I discovered a few errors in the markup (one of my
predecessors hasd the unfortunate habit of treating <p> as a "create
some space here" tag, and more often than not put it at the end of a
paragraph, rather than using is as a container element (which is what
it is, really).
* Re did the control files, making them more robust
* re did the rules file, making it more general, and easier to maintain
by putting in a layer of abstractions.
