Debian Packaging

Structure

This package is maintained on a Git repository through some important branches.

branch role
debian pacman4console and the debian package source code (debian directory)
upstream Everything that was on the original upstream tarball (orig.tar.gz)
pristine-tar Debian original tarball
readme This single file, explaining all that

Getting Started

To start working on this package, clone this repository along with all branches:

# Cloning the entire repository
$ git clone https://github.com/alexdantas/pacman4console.debian

# For now you have only the `readme` branch
$ git branch
* readme

# But the other branches are actually "hidden"
$ git branch -a
* readme
remotes/origin/debian
remotes/origin/pristine-tar
remotes/origin/upstream

# So start working on one of them with this
# specific command:
$ git checkout -b debian origin/debian

# And by this moment you have this branch as "non-hidden"
# You can go back and forth as you like
$ git checkout -b readme
$ git checkout -b debian

Notes

  1. Remember that the debian is not the one you get right after cloning this repository!
  2. Workaround.org has a nice article on co-maintaining a Debian package with Git and git-buildpackage.
