Hey guys-

I made the official tarball release, and I've updated bzr.dev. However,
I'm still trying to work out creating a .deb file and uploading it to
the launchpad ppa.

I suppose I could try doing the hardy release first, but I started with
dapper. I've followed Martin's good instructions (though it missed
needing 'fakeroot' and 'cdbs' installed.)

Anyway, I'm at the point of doing 'debbuild' and I'm getting an error I
don't really know how to resolve:

/usr/share/cdbs/1/class/python-distutils.mk:60: WARNING:  Use of
XS-Python-Version and XB-Python-Version fields in debian/control is
deprecated with pysupport method; use debian/pyversions if you need to
specify specific versions.
debian/rules:7: /usr/share/cdbs/1/rules/patchsys-quilt.mk: No such file
or directory
make: *** No rule to make target
`/usr/share/cdbs/1/rules/patchsys-quilt.mk'.  Stop.
dpkg-buildpackage: failure: fakeroot debian/rules clean gave error exit
status 2
debuild: fatal error at line 1329:
dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot -d -us -uc -S -sa -i failed

I'm not sure how to proceed from here, and I'm getting a bit tired. I'll
probably try it again later, but I have exactly 0 experience with
building debs, so it may be a bit before I get it working.


PS> It sure looks like a PITA to release bzr+plugins across ~5 supported
versions of Ubuntu.
