This page is only interesting for project maintainers and packagers. This is not required for installing and using zpm.

  1. Install Debian packaging dependencies:

    $ sudo apt-get install devscripts debhelper
  2. Clone source from Git. Example:

    $ git clone
  3. Amend the debian/changelog using dch.

  4. Create a gzipped tarball of the zpm source (minus the debian/ dir):

    $ tar czf ../zpm_0.1.orig.tar.gz * --exclude=debian

    Note that the .tar.gz file name will vary depending on the latest entry in the changelog.

  5. Build a binary package:

    $ debuild

    or for a source package,

    $ debuild -S
