gimmie (ITA) and the new menu policy + building with pristine-tarMar 4, 2008 · 1 minute read · Comments
While working on Bug#460620: ITA: gimmie – elegant desktop organizer, I noticed that I need to upgrade debian/menu to the new policy.
Currently, gimmie uses Apps/Tools, but what should I use now? It does not fit into the other sections. Recommendations?
Other important changes:
I am the new maintainer
Gmenu and sexy extensions are not built, instead the python-gmenu and python-sexy packages are used
Gimmie’s extensions are compiled for Python 2.4 and Python 2.5
debian/copyright uses the format defined at http://wiki.debian.org/Proposals/CopyrightFormat
The suspend and hibernations buttons are back again (Commit)
To create the orig.tar.gz tarballs, you need to have pristine-tar installed. To build the package, install git-buildpackage (from unstable) and pristine-tar and simply run ‘git-buildpackage –git-pristine-tar’
The same instructions also apply to building readahead-list, which can be found at git://git.debian.org/git/collab-maint/readahead-list.git
