Re: Bug#696899: can anybody sponsor an ITP for premake4 ?

Please use the premake4_4.3-1 version. After feedback from Jonathan that the version number shouldn't be incremented until it's actually uploaded to unstable I switched the version back to 4.3-1. The url is http://mentors.debian.net/debian/pool/main/p/premake4/premake4_4.3-1.dsc. I don't know if I can delete the 4.3-2 upload from mentors unfortunately.

If you don't already have a pbuilder environment set up it might be easier to use debuild. The following should hopefully build and install the package for you:

sudo apt-get install dget devscripts debhelper cdbs liblua5.1-0-dev
dget -ux http://mentors.debian.net/debian/pool/main/p/premake4/premake4_4.3-1.dsc
cd premake4-4.3/
debuild -us -uc
cd ..
dpkg -i premake4_4.3-1_i386.deb (assuming i386)

There may be an easier way, I'm no expert :)

mentors.debian.net doesn't offer binary packages (I think the
historical reason is that end users sometimes picked up binary
packages from mentors.d.n, and then complained to the BTS or elsewhere
when those packages broke something). I suggest just building it
yourself, e.g. using pbuilder:

# pbuilder --build premake4_4.3-2.dsc
