Unable to push to project FOSSology

Asked by Gaurav Mishra on 2019-03-02

I have recently gained maintainer access to fossology project (https://launchpad.net/fossology/) via question 678400 (https://answers.launchpad.net/launchpad/+question/678400). But the project does not have a PPA neither have an option to create one.

I tried pushing to ~gmishx/ubuntu/fossology and ~ubuntu/fossology using dput ppa:<the_correct_path_i_dont_know>/<my>source.changes

There are some old packages from the same project under ubuntu:
https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/fossology

Can you please help me where I can push the sources as I can not see PPAs in my project.

There's no formal linkage between projects and PPAs. Projects that want to recommend a particular PPA just do so by linking to it from their description or whatever.

You seem to have successfully uploaded to https://launchpad.net/~gmishx/+archive/ubuntu/fossology, so I'm not sure I see the problem here?

If you check the project https://launchpad.net/fossology , it already have old packages. I want to update them with new packages.

It is true that I have uploaded under my user's PPA but it will not be reflected on https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/fossology as it refers to my project.

At the end of the day, I want to see new packages of fossology on https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/fossology.

https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/fossology is the official repository for Ubuntu, and all software that is there has to pass an approval process.

Have you read http://packaging.ubuntu.com/html/ ?

Can you help with this problem?
