using PPA to prepage packages for Ubuntu

Asked by Timmie on 2007-11-14

Hello,
there are many python packages (modules) for scientific purposes that I would like to see included in Ubuntu.

Example: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+bug/148527

Can I use PPA to prepare packages that will be included in Ubuntu?

How would that process be?

Do I just need to upload the python sources into the PPA and then indicate my PPA URL to the Ubuntu maintainers?

Thanks.

Hi Tim,

Yes, you can use Launchad's PPA service to build packages. AutoPPA is
a tool to automate preparing and uploading sources for PPA to build.
If you're interested in producing packages for Ubuntu you should look
at the MOTU documentation [1], if you haven't already. If you have
questions about AutoPPA please ask.

Thanks,
J.
