Update: Somebody told me that
dh_make can use CDBS nowadays, so you might be better of using it instead.
Quickpackage is a Ruby script used to easily create Debian packages from autotooled software. It’s really good for testing new applications. Sssch! Show, don’t tell.
foobar-1.0 % quickpackage Please verify that Quickpackage detected the correct name and version. * Name [foobar]: * Version [1.0]: * Description [...]: Puts the foo in the bar Quickpackage will now create the `debian' directory. Done! Thank you for using Quickpackage. You can now build the package using `dpkg-buildpackage'
You can grab Quickpackage from its SVN repository.
I don’t keep the pre-built package around anymore, but you can build one yourself:
cd /tmp svn co http://code.qerub.se/svn/misc/quickpackage/trunk quickpackage cd quickpackage fakeroot dpkg-buildpackage sudo dpkg -i ../quickpackage*.deb
