Nightly builds from a http-archive

Asked by Anders Wallenquist on 2012-01-04

I want to build a PPA with nightly builds of openerp from and What is best practice? Can I use a recipe for this? Can I use local resources that mirror and runs a daily upload to the PPA? Upload already built deb-files or source? Is it a better method to this by use bazaar lp:openobject-server branch and then apply a recipe?

Recipes were built with daily builds in mind. Please see the help wiki page at:

Yes, but If all I got is a new non source deb-file at a time in a http-repository. Can I still use recipies? I have tried daily build with recipies using imported VCS and the structure of lp:openobject-server makes it difficult (there are a lot of files missing and stuff done that seems not possible to do at the building server). I'have tried and failed to turn the deb-file a source that is possible to dput to the PPA and buildfarm.

Recipe builds work only with source branches. If you wish, you can create a branch that, when merged into lp:openobject-server, adds the missing files and makes the required changes. Your recipe would use the "merge" instruction, so that the builds are up-to-date with lp:openobject-server, but have your changes applied.

Can you help with this problem?
