Re: Please sponsor my game bug=923180

Hello All,

Thanks for all of the advice. 

I'm learning lots but for the moment my head is still spinning.
I think I'll start by applying Markus's recommend fixes and build 
with version 12. Once I have a better grasp, I'll fiddle with the different
bits to make it more solid. At the momment I'm learning what 
AppStream is so that I can incorporate it into infintetux.

>From what I can tell, it's an XML file to share meta data in a platform 
independent way.

I'll search for an example so that I can better understand it.
Any recommendations?

Having tons of fun so far!

 You can even use debhelper 12 in Debian unstable. It works

 FWIW, I've bumped the
 debhelper compat level to 12 on all of my packages
 and so far I have not seen any problems.  I
 think the sentence that you
 refer to is
 meant more as a strongly-worded warning mostly so that
 people will notice it, so that the authors are
 satisifed that they have
 made people aware
 of the fact that moving to compat level 12 *might*, in
 theory, expose some bugs in debhelper.  I do
 not think the debhelper
 maintainers actually
 *believe* that there are any serious bugs in
 the handling of compat level 12, this is more
 of disclaiming
 resposibility or
 I think that for
 new packages going straight to compat level 12 (with
 the debhelper-compat (= 12) shorthand; this
 even works for 11) should be
 fine, provided
 the package maintainer looks carefully through the build
 log and through the contents of the built
 binary packages.  In addition,
 (from the reproducible builds folks) is a great tool that
 really help with that - build a package
 with your current debian/*
 files, stash it
 in a directory, change the compat level, build a new
 package, run diffoscope on the *source.changes
 or the *.changes file.
