Ruby Packaging for Starters
This document will try to give a short description of the general workflow of upgrading and creating Debian packages for the ruby-team for beginners.
If you are already an expert in Debian packaging and in using Git and salsa.debian.org, you may find the ruby-team pages in the Debian-Wiki more straight forward.
For this workflow description we only assume that you are a little bit familiar with the Debian package management and may have built one or another Debian package for personal use before. You should have had installed at least the packages
and you should have taken a closer look into the installed Documents
as well as into the Ruby pages of the Debian Wiki
It will also be useful to set your name and the email-address you want to use developing packages in your
~/bashrc (if you have not already done so):
DEBFULLNAME="your name" DEBEMAILfirstname.lastname@example.org
Communication in the ruby-team mainly happens via mailing list:
So it is a good start to subscribe this list.
There is also an IRC channel where team members hang around and where you may find help:
#debian-ruby on irc.debian.org (OFTC)
All done? Then let’s get started!
