dh-make-elpa - helper for creating Debian packages from ELPA packages
dh-make-elpa [--pkg-emacsen] [make] dh-make-elpa help
dh-make-elpa will try to create the files required to build a Debian source package from an unpacked GNU Emacs ELPA package. dh-make-elpa is an experimental script that performs a lot of guesswork. You should throughly verify the contents of the debian/ directory before uploading TYPICAL USAGE % git clone -o upstream https://foo.org/foo.git % cd foo % git reset --hard 1.0.0 # package latest stable release % git branch --unset-upstream # detaches master branch from upstream remote % dh-make-elpa --pkg-emacsen % git add debian && git commit -m "initial Debianisation" % git deborig % dpkg-buildpackage -us -uc COMMANDS make Default command if no command is given. Creates debianisation from scratch. Fails with an error if debian/ directory already exists. help Displays short usage information. OPTIONS --pkg-emacsen Sets "Maintainer", "Uploaders", "Vcs-Git" and "Vcs-Browser" fields in debian/control according to the Team's conventions. This option is useful when preparing a package for the Debian Emacs Addon Packaging Team <https://pkg-emacsen.alioth.debian.org>. --version Specify the ELPA package version. Useful when upstream failed to include either a Package-Version: header or a -pkg.el file. TIPS Upstream remote The remote for upstream's git repository should be called 'upstream'. You can use: % git clone -o upstream https://foo/bar
