GSoC Weekly report of Katerina for weeks 1 and 2


My project is about packaging additional Android SDK Tools and updating some packaged Android SDK Tools.

I had credits (tests) and exams at the university from 13 to 31 May. So I couldn't prepare for the project during the community bounding period and couldn't start the work on the project during the first week (27-31 May). So there was no first week report from me before since I had nothing to report.

This is what was learned and done this week:

1. Studying Recommendations in the "Learn to Maintain Debian Packages" section of the article <https://seamlik.github.io/blog/posts/How-to-Contribute-to-Android-SDK-in-Debian.html> + studying information from the other links which were mentioned in this article
2. Studying the report on Android SDK Tools in Debian at https://debconf16.debconf.org/talks/18
3. Studying the information on the following Debian Wiki pages:

5. Creation of reliable working environment for the project:

6. Installation of the newest Debian Testing on desktop computer for project work
7. Studying the information about Debian Salsa server at:
8. Creation of my guest account on Debian Salsa server at https://salsa.debian.org/kt-guest as per instructions at https://salsa.debian.org/help#user-account
9. Studying some relevant theory from “The Debian Administrator's Handbook” (Debian package debian-handbook) namely:
Chapter 5. Packaging System: Tools and Fundamental Principles:
5.1. Structure of a Binary Package
5.2. Package Meta-Information
