[edit] Help bringing a package up to date

  • Make yourself a account, upload your SSH keys, and install Bazaar.
  • Grab the source package that Mer package is based on, and the new one from the Fremantle alpha, extract them. diff -ruN them, and save the diff (from now on patchname).
  • Typical files to avoid patching (you can delete them in the resulting patch):
    • .in files
    • configure
    • (feel free to add more to the list)
  • bzr branch <lp:something listed in table below>
  • cd into the checked out directory
  • Apply the patch from before (patch -p1 < patchname probably, you can patch -p1 --dry-run < patchname to test run the patch), fix it if it doesn't apply cleanly (watch out for configure and autoconf generated things)
  • bzr add any added files (avoid .rej and .orig, bzr status is a good tool)
  • dch -m -i, and add your personal log message. Name the version, Mer version + 1.
  • bzr commit -m "your personal log message"
  • bzr push lp:~yourusername/m-r/packagename
  • Ideally, bzr export <some dir> lp:~yourusername/m-r/packagename, cd <some dir> and try to dpkg-buildpackage -b it.
  • Point us to the branch and we'll put the branch in the repository and build it.

Most patches apply cleanly, though, you will most likely see patch failed in debian/changelog, is fairly easy to fix, just add the items from .rej without the +'s in the front and add an according version above it using dch.
