quickly share / release to a launchpad project

Asked by filipe

I have a project that up until now I had been releasing into one of my PPA. Now I have created the project in Launchpad and would like to start releasing into it. I tried to do quickly configure lp-project tagplayer and then quickly release but I get the following result:

ppa:hikibi:ppa does not exist. Please create it on launchpad if you want to push a package to it.

ERROR: release command failed

(hikibi is my user name and tagplayer my project name)
Does the project not have its own PPA? What am I doing wrong?

I am using Quickly 0.6.1 on ubuntu 10.10

Projects don't have PPAs, no. (At least not yet, I believe that's a planned Launchpad feature.)

So I believe Quickly is just using the default PPA which is hikibi/ppa. You should specify where you want it to go with --ppa (as it sounds like you have been with 'quickly share').

If you want a different PPA than you've been using (which is recommended -- good to keep beta releases away from official releases), create a new one either under the same user or create a new user/group.

I'm still having trouble with quickly release. This time it fails after I enter the gpg passphrase with this message

Can't open ../tagplayer_0.1.72-public3_source.changes
ERROR: an error occurred during source upload to launchpad

Nevermind, quickly and I disagreed on version numbers and it was its way of telling me... I was trying to release 0.1.7 and it required 0.2.
