Hi, hosxy.

You could create a PPA to store your packages, and add them as regular dpkg dependencies for other packages.

This way, you would build D and publish it to your PPA. Then, list D as dependency when building C, and so on.

Please, refer to the packaging guide (https://packaging.ubuntu.com/html/) and how to create recipes (https://help.launchpad.net/Packaging/SourceBuilds/GettingStarted) for more information.

Let us know if you have more doubts about it.

Hello Thiago F. Pappacena :
I find I have to wait for D build successful and auto upload to my ppa,then I can upload C.
 I can't upload A B C D at the same time,if do this, building will be fail.
uploading next package have to wait for previous package build successful and upload to ppa, it will wast my a lot of time.

Can you help with this problem?
