I've just started packaging gitorious, which is a RoR app and so there
are a few missing gems that I will be packaging up for apt in the
process. I'm not a DD, or even a particularly experienced packager. Also
I don't know much about ruby :D
But I think I've got a decent enough handle on what I need to do here,
so I'm looking for someone to check over a package I just built for the
"grit" gem and tell me if I'm getting things right, and what (if
anything) more would need to be done to get the packages I produce into
I did look at the ruby-extras packaging team first, but I think that is
for slightly more generic libs than I'm likely to build from the
gitorious packaging? Apologies if I'm in the wrong place now.
I registered an account on Alioth (wdaniels-guest) but I don't see
anywhere there to upload packages for review. So if it suits somebody
who can look, you could just grab it from my git:
git clone git://gitorious.org/debian-gitorious/deb-gitorious-rubygems.git
NB: There's a few others in there too, but grit is the only one so far
that I've properly checked (I hope) to patch out rubygems, add the apt
dependencies etc. I basically just want somebody to tell me I've done
things correctly with that one before I go charging any further down the
same path with the rest of it.
Hope you can help.
