Preparing and Uploading PPA Packages
Ensure the package builds locally
[your_launchpad_name-ppa] fqdn = ppa.launchpad.net method = ftp incoming = ~your_launchpad_name/ubuntu/ login = anonymous allow_unsigned_uploads = 0
Add the launchpad package signing info (matching your digital key) to the shell environment. Edit ~/.bashrc
export DEBEMAIL="email@example.com" export DEBFULLNAME="Your Name"
Note: You'll need to log-out and log-in for this to be re-read, or you can just do:
Prepare the package and sign it:
cd package-1.2.3 fakeroot debian/rules clean debuild -S -sa cd .. dput your_launchpad_name-ppa package_1.2.3-0ubuntu1~ppa1_source.changes
Check your email for Accept/Reject? messages. If you see this:
Rejected: Signer has no upload rights at all to this distribution. Signer is not permitted to upload to the component 'universe' of file 'package_1.2.3-0ubuntu1~ppa1.dsc'
you probably forgot to specify your_launchpad_name-ppa for the dput command.
