Re: About Package Creation... (sarge vs sid)

No, you also have to be sure that the package that is being uploaded to

For sponsored uploads, this is usually not an issue, since the sponsor
ought to be doing a rebuild from source before uploading.

Is using pbuilder enough? I messed around with that a bit, I *think* I was able to build my package under "fake sid" using it, but I'm not sure I did it right. These are the steps I did:

Starting from source dir...
cd ..
pbuilder create
pbuilder create --distribution sid
pbuilder build --distribution sid stripclub_0.6-1.dsc

Am I missing anything important, or should that have done it?
