How to build PPAs from Stellarium trunk?

Asked by Petr Kubánek on 2017-04-07

Hi,

I would like to build custom packages from Stellarium trunk, to faciliate RTS2 users to use latest Stellarium (without need to compiling). I know there is packaging.ubuntu.com, I know how debian packages works, but what I am missing is a simple step-by-step guide how to get from bzr branch of stellarium something I can use with dput to upload it to my PPA. A record of shell commands, starting with:

bzr checkout lp:stellarium

and showing progress to build PPA is all I need. If somebody is doing that regularly, please can he/she/it post it?

Thanks a lot

To install our daily PPA in Ubuntu:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:stellarium/daily
