getting package into Debian

Registered by Marek BardoĊ„ski

1. Package clicompanion 1.1

2. Test the package carefully and thoroughly in both Debian sid and in
Ubuntu Precise, on as many machines and DEs as we can (i386 and amd64, Unity,
GNOME2 maybe, GNOME3, KDE). Perhaps test backports to older releases of
Ubuntu (10.04 LTS for example), if testing resources allow that.

2. Test what happens if you install the package on
machines that are already running older (packaged or unpackaged)
versions of clicompanion -- do they upgrade cleanly?

3. Ask a DD, Piotr. for review of the package.

4. Put out an RFS for it, so we get a sponsor who can upload it into
Debian unstable (this can be the same friendly DD as in step (8)). Have
the sponsor check and upload the source package for us.

5. Monitor bug feedback (in the Debian BTS) and build feedback (on etc. from the release to unstable, using and the PTS at, address any issues
found, and go back to step (4) for a reupload if needed.

6. If all goes well, the package will be migrated into Debian
testing, and this package release of clicompanion is complete.

7. Celebrate! We did it :)
