Here you are my first packaging attempt:


Download the sources and follow the steps bellow:

- Create your own gpg signature key.

- Create a folder named epoch and go into it.

- Generate an empty git repository and import the project using

    $ git init
    $ git config --global user.name "viverna"
    $ git config --global user.email "viverna@???"
    $ gpg import-orig ../epoch_1.3.0.tar.bz2

    Enter the name of the project and its version.

- Now yo can build the project:

    $ git-buildpackage -j4 -tc -kXXXXXXXX
--git-export-dir="../build-area" --git-tag --git-ignore-branch

being XXXXXXXX the public part of your gpg key.

Once you've built it, you can import the whole project using
git-builtpackage again via:

$ gbp import-dsc ../epoch_1.3.0.dsc

As an exercise, you can include all the defined conditionals in the
buildepoch.sh script (I *removed* this file!) in the Makefile by the
following way:

ifeq (....)


You could fuse both projects in an unique source defining two separate
packages in the control file, but they have different version numbers.
Keep it in mind.
