For 12.10.1, is there a tarball available?

Asked by afoglia on 2015-01-07

Are there any plans to release a tarball of 12.10.1? The latest available version, according to launchpad, is 12.10 <https://launchpad.net/libappindicator/+download>, but Trusty's source is up to 12.10.1. <http://packages.ubuntu.com/source/trusty/libappindicator>.

Should we be treating the libappindicator source package .orig.tar.gz as the release instead of waiting for it to appear here?

Quantal is not supported in any way and their really is no availability (official) of anything to do with Quantal.

I'm not asking about Quantal. I'm asking about milestone 12.10.1 of libappindicator. I'm trying to use libappindicator as part of an application that includes its own python. At the very least, we'd need to compile the python bindings configured with our python.

We can't compile 12.10, because it uses a deprecated function, and the default compilation rules treat that as an error.

The final application would run on Trusty. Trusty uses version 12.10.1 of libappindicator.

How do PPAs help? They generate debs, not source tarballs. Any deb would be compiled for their system python, not the python we're building. Besides, where would they get their equivalent of .orig.tar.gz? Upstream (you) hasn't officially released one.

Ideally you would run autoconf on your cut, use that as the orig.tar.gz tarball for packaging and release it here as well, but I guess you want to have Ubuntu packaging as the only consumer of your source.

Can you help with this problem?
