Re: Fwd: Packaging for Debian

Thanks, Fungi and Nico.

At first moment, I just want package for personal/professional use.
I am working in a project that involves localizing/packaging the LBAdmin software.

In the future, when packaging basics are familiar for me, I would like properly package software for
inclusion into Debian, a more complicated job. And, may be, adopt other packages.
Then, I will subscribe to the debian-mentors mailing list.

Helps a lot.

Thank you very much,

This is a quick hack for when you have already-compiled software you
want to package for personal use on Debian (commercial applications
or the like).

This document describes how to properly package software for
inclusion into Debian, or when you want to have packages that are
rebuildable from a source package in an automated fashion.

If the latter is your goal, subscribing to the debian-mentors
mailing list to ask questions (after first searching through the
list archives for your answer) is highly recommended. Also, there's
much fine documentation to this end available from:


Hope that helps!
