Great. When you get the chance, would it be possible for you to post the git commands you use to update the branches. I want to be sure I'm doing it the right way (since I didn't get prompted to git pull when checking out a branch it may not be the case)... Did you create remotes?

One reason for me wanting to link lp:freecad to the freecad-maintainers repos is to reduce the length of the git urls. I'm not sure it's doable though.

Soon we could start thinking about how to write this all down on the wiki. I'm thinking a "FreeCAD packaging portal" that links to subpages for Ubuntu packaging, Windows packaging and OS X packaging...

I'm still using the long url's but I will work on this soon. I'll try write something up, for this part at least, tomorrow. I want to try a couple of things first that may simplify things. You're right though documenting this is paramount! We may finish just in time for Python3, QT5, OCCT 7, VTK .... :o It's starting to smell like a win Libpack ;)
Again Thanks for all your work on this. It's definitely a great accomplishment.

No problem, thanks to you too for your dedication.

And with the git repositories the way we've set them up, I think we'll be in better shape for the future, even if upstream freecad will have to be pushed manually to LP from now on. Maybe we can write and share a script to automate, so if you're not available I can update the whole thing on my own. :)

Over the past few days I tried a few times to delete obsolete bzr recipes for freecad-maintainers (full list is here) and I always get a timeout. I had no problem deleting my own test recipes on my own LP account so there seems to be a problem specific to freecad-maintainers. We'll have to ask Launchpad support.

Oh man, now you're opening a whole new can of worms.

Thinking about packaging OCCT 7 makes my head hurt. :? But we may have no choice if we want FreeCAD to go forward. OCE seems to be in a ditch, with no sign of it being put on track again. :(

- Find out how to get the SHA the source package has been created from.

Code: Select all

$ git ls-remote -h https://git.launchpad.net/~freecad-maintainers/+git/gitmaster
5edeb99828be571ff2a21e6bd4661df00a526839        refs/heads/master

Can you post the output of

Code: Select all

git remote -v
for each of the local version of the Launchpad repo's. The gitmaster code branch probably is just your clone of Github FreeCAD unless you've cloned from launchpad.

In the cue https://code.launchpad.net/~clhclh/+recipe/gitmaster-daily

For those following along, if you are not an experienced PPA user PLEASE DO NOT TEST. This is still experimental and we do not know the full consequences yet.

@NormandC
Do you have more thoughts on the LaunchPad versioning of the FreeCAD-daily package? Maybe appending the git hash. I think this is safe with the date first, to make the version more identifiable. But the normal user probably will never notice and we want to avoid any epoch stuff. I'm OK either way and will defer to your opinion.
EDIT: Added my personal PPA as software source and installed FreeCAD-daily. Got this

Unknown media type in type 'uri/rtspt'
Unknown media type in type 'uri/rtspu'

I have freecad stable installed, freecad-daily installed, and an an uninstalled self-compiled build. They all seem to be peacefully coexisting.
EDIT: ppa:freecad-community/ppa packages are only available from FreeCAD stable. This could be re-worked.

OK this seems to be a KDE problem.
