Debian Packaging

Create a directory to be used for packaging. The rest of the commands assume you are in that directory.

 mkdir packaging
 cd packaging

Clone the repository, switch to the release tag, and check out submodules:

 git clone git://github.com/sirikata/sirikata.git sirikata-0.0.18
 cd sirikata-0.0.18
 git checkout v0.0.18
 git submodule update --init --recursive

Now edit the changelog file to add a new section (you might do this step *before* the tag so it can be part of the "original" tgz):

 dch --newversion 0.0.18-0ubuntu1

Now go back up a directory and create the "orig" tar file that debian requires (note _ instead of -, it matters):

 tar -cvzf sirikata_0.0.18.orig.tar.gz sirikata-0.0.18
