I'm sure I screwed something up here.


I based these dependency versions off what's available in Precise, assuming we'd need to backport it.

Should be rebased since D45: Include a to help with packaging landed, don't need the setup.(py|cfg) change here anymore.

For consistency I assume it should be changed to wikimedia or change the other one? (See another inline)

Trying to rebase this correctly :/

LGTM overall, will need to try to build it too


I think you can go for 9 here (latest debhelper)


ditto debhelper >= 9


are the specific versions hard requirements? IOW we're using specific features, if not I'd just omit it from packages that don't need it

builds fine locally, lintian warnings below. debian/copyright one we should fix, ditto for description and standards-version, all fairly easy

Now running lintian...

Finished running lintian.

Maintainer field in debian/control doesn't have "Team" so it should be consistent here


just "scap" I think would be easier to find/remember as a binary package

Create a tag named upstream/3.0

I guess we need to pick an official tag point if we're going to declare 3.0 and push said tag :)

Addressed all comments by @fgiunchedi and additionally added a patch to set a more suitable bin_dir config default for the packaged version.

Indeed! Maybe we should pick a point after the scap3 docs are "finished" (i.e. drafted).

I tested the deb build, installed it, and ran deploy and deploy-log from their new homes in /usr/bin. It all went well.
