I need a debian package for a few servers that I control where I am
going to put some webware code into production.
All my work till now has been done with webware in /usr/local/Webware,
but since the servers are debian servers I would much prefer to have it
packaged as a deb. I will be using the webware 0.8 on woody servers.
There was a thread on this earlier on, but no-one owned up to having
actually made any debs. I will go ahead and make my own, but I was just
wondering if anyone had done this already.
I understand that to do it "properly" one would want to follow things such
as the FHS and debian policy. However, if I do it myself, my goal will
be to get a working deb as quickly as possible, not to make a package
acceptable to debian.
Therefore I'll probably just dump the tarball in /usr/lib/Webware,
install the init script, and arrange to have some basic setup (setup.py,
from memory?) run in the postinst script. Also put wkcgi in
On the other hand, if anyone is preparing packages with a view to
getting them included in debian, I'd be happy to help out with testing
I was a man who start that duscussion about debian pckages. Now I have
deb with webware in /usr/lib/python2.2/site-packages/webware/, working
context in /home/webware, init-script and wkcgi. Apache module is in
progress, however like man, README, Changelog and other plicy stuff that
I need to became maintainer and put webware to debian unstable.
Current version may not work in stable, because I have no clean
stable to compile wkcgi. Can anyone send me wkcgi and mod_webkit.so
compiled for stable?
