Hi Bas,

on SoB Wiki page[1] you asked for sponsering your package.  I checked
out VCS via

  gbp-clone ssh://git.debian.org/git/pkg-grass/osgearth.git

and found an old version there which is lagging behind mentors[2] please
commit everything to VCS to make sure it is in sync with what you intend
to upload.  I'll generally rebuild a package from VCS via
git-buildpackage.

Kind regards

        Andreas.

The changes for the package on mentors are in git, but in the jessie
branch not in master. This should work for the moment:

  gbp-clone --debian-branch=jessie
ssh://git.debian.org/git/pkg-grass/osgearth.git

I'll merge the changes for jessie into master and push it to git.debian.org.

Well, forcing people to wait is demotivating ... and I want to push a
bit on the motivation side, right. ;-)

Ahhh, that was a bit hidden from the workflow I'm usually following

> I'll merge the changes for jessie into master and push it to git.debian.org.

Found it.

.../osgearth (master) $ git-buildpackage
gbp:info: Orig tarball 'osgearth_2.4.0+dfsg.orig.tar.gz' not found at '../tarballs/'
gbp:warning: Pristine-tar branch "pristine-tar" not found
pristine-tar: no pristine-tar branch found, use "pristine-tar commit" first
gbp:error: Couldn't checkout "osgearth_2.4.0+dfsg.orig.tar.gz": /usr/bin/pristine-tar returned 1

.../osgearth (master) $ git branch
* master
  upstream


Hmmm, it seems pristine-tar branch is missing.  I'm used to import upstream
tarball via

    git import-orig --pristine-tar

which enables the byte-identical recreation of the upstream tarball.  While
I could download the tarball for sure would you consider also injecting this
(or am I missing something again?)

Kind regards

       Andreas.

Hi again,

Only cosmetic hints:

debian/rules:
-------------

override_dh_clean:
        dh_testdir

        -$(RM) -rf build/

        -$(RM) debian/.#* .#*

        dh_prep

        -$(RM) -rf $(CURDIR)/debian/files
        -$(RM) -f $(CURDIR)/debian/*.debhelper.log
        -$(RM) -f $(CURDIR)/debian/man/*.1


It would be way shorter to do:

override_dh_clean:
	dh_clean
	-$(RM) -f $(CURDIR)/debian/man/*.1
	-$(RM) -rf build/

May be I forgot something - but calling the original dh_clean does
several things you are doing manually.  dh_testdir should not be
needed in override_* statements neither should dh_prep.  So you can
drop the dh_testdir from any of your override_* targets.

Regarding the get-orig-source target please read what I wrote in my
mail this morning:
   https://lists.debian.org/debian-gis/2013/09/msg00017.html
The enhanced uscan just does what you want it to do.  So I would
recommend for the next upstream version (no reason to fumble around
with this onw) to use the enhanced uscan.

Moreover I think you can drop
   export DEB_BUILD_MAINT_OPTIONS=hardening=+all
It should be default for debhelper compat=9 .



debian/control:
---------------

Do you know

     cme fix dpkg-control

Please just try it (I think you should call it twice in the row to fix
all issues).  You get a better readable debian/control file and it also
drops unneeded versioned Depends.  Calling cme to fix d/control quickly
became part of my packaging workflow right after I realised this nice
tool.  You can also run it on dpkg-copyright to ensure DEP5
compatibility but in your case it is OK (even if I consider things like
this

Copyright: 2008-2010, Pelican Mapping
  2008-2011, Pelican Mapping
  2008-2012, Pelican Mapping
  2008-2013, Pelican Mapping

a bit strange ...)


So you can see for the moment only nitpicking comments.  Feel free to
ask me to upload anyway once you told me whether you would include
pristine-tar or whether I should use the original tarball in
../tarballs.


Kind regards

       Andreas.

It is certainly motivating, I appreciate it a lot.

I don't use pristine-tar, I just commit the uscan downloaded upstream
tarball to the upstream branch and merge that into the release specific
branch and/or master to work on the debian packaging for the new
upstream release.

I build the packages with git-buildpackage specifying the upstream tree
and debian branch. For example:

  git-buildpackage --git-upstream-tree="upstream"
--git-debian-branch="jessie" --git-pbuilder --git-dist=sid -sa >
/var/tmp/osgearth-2.4.pbuilder 2>&1 &

Using pristine-tar instead of commiting the whole upstream tarballs is
probably better.

It's probably a good idea to adopt the Debian Perl Group Git Guide and
modify it for Debian GIS. That workflow looks much better than what I've
come up with, and more like what you were expecting.

So far we only document how to setup a Git repo for Debian GIS on the
wiki. We can use the git guide to document the next steps.

Uhmmm, that's a pretty long line to type + to remember.  I feel way to
stupid to remember all this and I rely on a workflow that takes a

    git-buildpackage

only. :-)

Well, ths upstream tarball is *also* included.  However, pristine-tar
stores some metainformation to be able to recreate a *byte-identical*
tarball which is a bit tricky with tar even if the content of the
archive might be byte identical.  There were several threads about this
in the past on debian-devel list.  So the pristine-tar branch is not
instead of the upstream branch but in addition.

Yes!

As I said:  In Debian Med we somehow forked Debian Perl workflow and are
quite happy about this.  It sounds quite sane to me to either fork again
for Debian Gis directly from Perl or Med (or a mix from both - whatever
seems to be apropriate).

You didn't forget anything. I've incorporated your suggestions in the
packaging. Thanks for the tips!

I spent quite sometime researching this issue, and with the knowledge I
gained I agree that your uscan version using d/copyright and the
get-orig-source script to handle the old way is quite nice. This is also
incorporated in the packaging.

Indeed. There is no need to use -pie like is required to build MapServer
successfully.

I'm aware of Config::Model, but had not thought of using it to tidy the
control file. I have mixed feelings about cme dropping the versioned
dependencies when the minimum required is available in all releases, I
like documenting the versions upstream requires.

It's a bit abiguous about which copyright statements apply to which of
the files. This was how licensecheck2dep5 groups them by default. I
grouped the files per years and holders for MapServer in the past, so
I've now done this for osgEarth too.

Seeing the merits of pristine-tar, I've added the branch and push all my
changes for the above to git.debian.org.

My local build doesn't show any regressions, so if you could have
another look at the recent changes I'd be very grateful.
