in reply to Padre released

I've been busy since last weekend trying to package Padre for Ubuntu Hardy, and here it is. The sources are available in Launchpad, too.

This is how you can set it up and install it:

  1. Add my PPA sources in APT:
    $ sudo vi /etc/apt/sources.list $ tail -3 /etc/apt/sources.list # alexm deb hardy main deb-src hardy main
  2. Add my GPG signature to APT:
    $ wget ' +DDC42192DF36811' -O- | sudo apt-key add -
  3. Update APT:
    $ sudo apt-get update
  4. Install Padre:
    $ sudo apt-get install libpadre-perl

This is the first time I manage to build some Perl packages. I had been playing with dh-make-perl in the past, but didn't know much about Debian packaging (not that I know much more now, anyway), but this time I was more motivated. Next step is trying to get them in Debian, so Ubuntu (and others) can make the modules officially part of next releases.

Update: added Ubuntu reference in title.

Update: fixed intall typo; thanks denny for noticing :)

      I've been trying to keep up to date, but since 0.06 the dependency nightmare was too much so I decided to join pkg-perl Debian team, which is already working on packaging Padre, in order to not make most of my work a waste of time.

      Working with Debian people will make updates for Ubuntu smoother, since most of the dependency work is already available on Debian Lenny, so I will only have to backport it to Ubuntu Hardy.

      BTW, I'm glad to see that my packages are actually been used; this really commits my interest in keeping the packages up to date, so stay tunned. Thanks!

    Hi, thanks for your efforts on packaging this up. Just wanted to note that you've made a typo in step 4 above - 'intall' rather than 'install'.

    Thanks. I added it to the Padre website as well.

    Does that mean it might be included in the next version of Ubuntu? BTW I think it would be better if it was just called 'padre' and to the CPAN name mapped.

      Does that mean it might be included in the next version of Ubuntu?

      I'll try (Intrepid is due by the end of October) but first it must be included in Debian, and that will be after Lenny release on September. However, there's some work going on in Debian because Alien::WxWidgets, Wx, et al. have been already included.

      I think it would be better if it was just called 'padre'

      Maybe it'll be possible, since it's an editor, not just a Perl module. The libfoo-bar-perl is the convention for Perl modules in Debian (it's awful, I know), but there are some exceptions and this should be one of them, indeed.
