When a developer with an account on the gNewSense buildd (bloodnok at the time of writing) has created a libre package (FIXME: Link) and wants to upload it to the buildd (FIXME: link), they should ensure the following configuration has been made.
dput is the tool we use for uploading source packages to the buildd. Please note binary packages MUST NOT be uploaded.
To configure dput, add the following snippet to your $HOME/.dput.rc file.
[gnewsense] fqdn = bloodnok.gnewsense.org incoming = /srv/autobuilder/incoming method = rsync allow_unsigned_uploads = 0 progress_indicator = 2 # Allow uploads for parkes/metad packages allowed_distributions = .*
This can be done with the following command:
- dput gnewsense packagenameandversion_source.changes
This will upload the source files into the correct path for the rebuildd helper jobs to find them and add them to the build queue.
If you upload a package with a changes file like this:
- dput gnewsense psutils_1.17+fsdg-1_i386.changes
The buildd will silently delete the package (It would be nice to make it verbosely refuse, but we don't have that yet)
