how to checkout, build and install latest sources for testing

apt-get install bzr-builddeb
bzr whoami "First Last <my@e.mail>" 
bzr branch http://bazaar.launchpad.net/~fai/fai/trunk-ubuntu
mkdir tarballs
apt-get source fai
mv fai_3.2.1.orig.tar.gz tarballs/
mkdir build-area
apt-get build-dep fai
cd trunk-ubuntu
bzr bd
# debs will be in ../build-area

how and where to report bugs/problems in latest sources

  • Bug is in a released version, file bug report(s)
    • ubuntu/+source/fai/+bugs
    • Debian BTS if also affected (e.g, reportbug --bts debian fai)
    • Cross reference bugs in Launchpad Malone and Debian BTS
  • Bug is only in a development branch or gutsy ppa deb,
    • fai/+bugs
    • Debian BTS if it's also affected
    • Cross reference bugs in Launchpad Malone and Debian BTS
    • Mention on IRC can't hurt. Use bold, stars, blinking text at the top in case UbuntuTeam/TODO if is a showstopper for next release ;)

If a bug fix applies to debian too always sent the patch to Debian BTS.

FIXME: how to specify the related LP in a debian bug report so Debian BTS monitors the launchpad too.
