pkg-java upload queue

Frederic Bonnard
Hi,                                                                                                                                                                                                              
I'd like to make available some sbt related packages that I pushed on
mentors.d.o while waiting for them to go past the ftpmasters which may
take more work and more time, so that maybe some other people can help
bringing all the sbt deps packaged.
I see there is a pkg-java upload queue mentionned on the wiki (
https://wiki.debian.org/Teams/JavaPackaging ) but I didn't manage to
upload there.
If I use the dput configuration proposed as-is, I get a "Unknown upload
method: sftp"
If I replace sftp by scp, I get "Permission denied (publickey)."
I tried adding a login parameter with my alioth account but it fails in
the same way.

So first : is it ok for the use I want to make of it ?
Is the pkg-java upload queue still working ?
What's wrong with my configuration ?
Do I need some more rights ( I have a -guest account in alioth ) ?
Thanks,

F.

Hi Frederic,

the paragraph about the pkg-java upload queue was obsolete and I have
just removed it. I don't believe anyone from the team used it in the
past years.

I think the most common workflow is to file an ITP bug report, package
the software, create a new Git repository in /git/pkg-java on
git.debian.org with the setup-repository script and push everything to
your new repo. Then just ask on this list for a reviewer and sponsor of
your package and someone will assist you.

If you want to make your packages available for non pkg-java team
members, then mentors.d.o is the right place for it. Everyone can
download your package with dget -x, so you don't really need a separate
repository.

Regards,

Markus

ok, thanks for updating the documentation.

I opened an ITP and a RFS, but the packages are not well suited for git
at the moment :
https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=855941#34

Ok, that's what I did in the meantime. The idea behind using pkg-java
upload queue was to distribute binary packages so that people can play
with them right away, whereas mentors.d.o is more about source packages
and there is 11 packages which is more work to fetch and build them one
by one (all the more that they are quite big).
At the moment, Andreas (#855941) already sponsored one of them and I'm waiting
for feedback from the ftpmasters so that if a problem arises, I can fix
it in the other packages if it's a common issue. This will prevent from
spamming packages in NEW with the same error.

Thanks again!
