Things To Remember


Well I just spent the last hour trying to build the latest version of origami.  Man, what a pain!  I thought I’d quickly jot down the few things that I learned so that I will (hopefully) not repeat those mistakes again!

  1. only needs a list of the docs, not the destination directory.
  2. lintian tells you how to fix the problem.  Pay attention and read!
  3. spell “licenses” correctly if you’re going to refer to “common-licenses”

At this point it looks like the only thing I have left to create is a man page and, according to lintian, origami will be error-free.  Anyone know how’n the hell to do that? 🙂

Until I figure that out I’m going to take this debian/ directory and save it in a bzr branch so if I get lost again I have a good, valid, working copy.

Big thanks to LaserJock for the help today!
