Could you please tell me exactly how you exported the tree for building.
I usually do it this way, for packages that already have a .orig.tar.gz
for that version in the archive:
$ svn co svn+ssh://email@example.com/svn/pkg-perl/packages/libstatistics-descriptive-perl/trunk libstatistics-descriptive-perl
$ cd tarballs
$ wget ...debian/archive/path/to/statistics-descriptive_2.6.orig.tar.gz
Now I see the problem. When I looked at the original source in the debian
archive the name was not in the standard perl format and that was part of
the change that had to be made to meet standards. That is why the method
you use is failing. Once this version goes in, the problem will be solved
for the future.
Here is what I do and it seems to give a package which does not have any
problems with lintian:
First I check out the tagged release (pardon the newlines in teh commands)
Sidenote: You should not tag the release. Tagging is done by the one who
does the final upload (in your case your sponsor), using
svn-buildpackage --svn-tag, so that the tagged version is quaranteed to
be the one used to build the uploaded package. You can testbuild using
the trunk. You probably should delete the tagged release from svn.
OK, I didn't know that but I will delete the tag and work from the trunk
Hmm. I can't remember ever having had to do that. Not sure though.
(slightly confused) can anyone else on the list help?Ü
This is what is in the svn documentation for the Debian-perl group.
If my reasoning about the original source is OK with you, I will delete
the tagged release and then let you know.
