How do I submit a rewritten /etc/init.d/lirc script?

Asked by jon-raiford on 2010-02-07

In researching how to define my remote control in Ubuntu, I found that it actually appears as multiple event devices. I found that a lot of people had problems with getting both devices to work together and most people either lived with the one device that supports most of the buttons or they hacked the system into launching multiple lircd instances.

I too hacked my system and decided I wanted a more elegant solution. I eventually rewrote the /etc/init.d/lirc script so it would allow an unlimited number of lircd instances to be defined by the hardware.conf file. This is a drop in replacement for the existing version, allowing an existing hardware.conf to work without modification.

Anyway, where do I submit my updated script? What do I need to do? (explain what I did, etc)

I would also like to update the configuration script (the thing that runs when you do a dpkg-reconfigure), but I'm not sure where to find that logic. Where do I find that? As like above, if/when I update it, where do I send the changes?

I'd assume they need some verification, hence I'd suggest it to devs related to package.
https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/lirc
http://packages.ubuntu.com/lucid/lirc

Not sure about if you need to initiate a project.

No need to make a whole project in Launchpad, just communicate with the package maintainers directly. Show them what you've done and they can then decide if they want to use your code.

Can you help with this problem?
