dgit and git-debrebase workshop

Speakers: Sean Whitton Ian Jackson

Track: Packaging, policy, and Debian infrastructure

Type: Workshop (2h)


Room: Xueshan (雪山)

Time: Jul 31 (Tue), 10:00

Duration: 1:45

git-debrebase is a new tool for managing Debian packaging in git. dgit is a bidirectional gateway between git and the Debian archive. These tools can be used independently or in combination.

We have published a tutorial for using the combination of git-debrebase and dgit to maintain Debian packages: the dgit-maint-debrebase(7) manpage. There are also: dgit-maint-gbp(7), dgit-maint-merge(7) and dgit-simple-nmu(7).

In this workshop we will help package maintainers start using the workflows described in these tutorials to maintain their packages. We can also answer general questions about dgit and git-debrebase.

We also hope to gain feedback as to how dgit-maint-debrebase(7), and git-debrebase and dgit more generally, could be improved.

For more information about git-debrebase, see the abstract for the talk about git-debrebase. Before joining this workshop, it would be useful to review some of the dgit-maint-*(7) manpages.
