Learn PPA and Ubuntu packaging basics

Personal Package Archives is Launchpad’s new beta feature that builds and hosts Ubuntu .deb packages in your very own apt repository.

At 15.00 UTC on Thursday 13th September, the Launchpad and Ubuntu MOTU teams are jointly hosting PPA and Packaging 101. This IRC session in #launchpad will introduce you to:

  • the basics of packaging for Ubuntu
  • solving your dependencies from the relevant Ubuntu section - i.e. the ogre model
  • version consistency between PPA and Ubuntu’s primary archive.

It’s also your opportunity to ask questions about PPA and get answers from the Launchpad and MOTU teams. If you want to see a particular topic covered, add it to the class’s agenda on the Launchpad help wiki.
See you there!
