Support apt.postgresql.org as PPA dependency

Asked by Hiroaki Nakamura on 2019-09-06

Currently we can add a repository only on PPA as PPA dependency.

Could you support adding apt.postgresql.org as PPA dependency?

Specifically I would like to add the following apt line as described in https://wiki.postgresql.org/wiki/Apt

deb http://apt.postgresql.org/pub/repos/apt/ $(lsb_release -cs)-pgdg main

I'd like to build packages of https://github.com/MasahikoSawada/pg_keeper
for PostgreSQL versions distributed at apt.postgresql.org.

Thanks in advance!

I'm sorry - this is not going to happen. It's a hard policy that anything that's used as a build-dependency in Launchpad must be in Launchpad itself, so you'll have to import the relevant packages into a Launchpad PPA (if they aren't there already) and get them built in Launchpad.

OK, I understand.

Thanks for taking time to answer my question.
