The new Ubuntu Packaging Guide is nearing completion but needs your help.
Browse it at http://developer.ubuntu.com/packaging/html/
Articles still to be written include
-working with Debian and upstreams
and in the knowledge base section articles needed on python, gnome,
syncing, PPA best practice.. infact any area of packaging you have
This guide focuses on Ubuntu Distributed Development in the
expectation that will be the near future of packaging in Ubuntu, and
merge requests on UDD branches are easy enough to accept even for
teams who don't use it yet. However there's still some workflow
problems with UDD that I think should be solved before this guide is
linked from developer.ubuntu.com e.g.
815854 merge-upstream requires patches to be uncommitted
816376 bzr bd-do for full source packages
Please do try using UDD and finding the workflow problems it has,
report bugs on bzr-builddeb and udd in Launchpad as appropriate.
