dh-make-gosa - Debianizes the source of a given gosa plugin


dh-make-gosa [OPTION]... SOURCE


dh-make-gosa takes a directory or tar ball of an existing gosa plugin and adds debian information to it. Feel free to use dpkg-buildpackage to generate your own gosa-plugin package from source or svn and enable it in the gosa.conf(5) file to activate it.


Set the Debian release to debian-release when generating the Debian tree. Default is the unstable release.

Place where dh-make-gosa will place its working data while generating the source directory. Defaults to the current directory.

Set the Debian section to debian-section when generating the Debian tree. Defaults to the the web section.

Add additional dependencies to the Debian tree which did not get listed in the plugin.dsc file. This is a comma separated list of Debian package names.

Overrides the Debian packager defined inside the plugin.dsc file by the one specified by mail.

Example usage

# Check out a plugin from SVN
svn co /tmp/samba
# Debianize the tree
cd /tmp
dh-make-gosa --email --release etch --section web samba
# Build debian package
cd samba
dpkg-buildpackage -uc -us -rfakeroot

To build everything from the subversion repository which is GOsa related, please take a look at the contributed make-gosa-package script.
