New short wiki pages on Debian & packaging

Postby kkremitzki » Mon Jan 21, 2019 12:25 am

https://www.freecadweb.org/wiki/DebianUnstable
https://www.freecadweb.org/wiki/DebianDevelopment
https://www.freecadweb.org/wiki/GitBuildpackage

I've been wanting to get some of my Debian/packaging knowledge into the wiki for a while, these are just first drafts towards that effort. I'd like to expand on instructions for running virtual machines since it's very easy to spin up a Debian Unstable VM and help out.
Like my FreeCAD work? I'd appreciate any level of support via Patreon, Liberapay, or PayPal! Read more about what I do at my blog.

Thanks!!! :)

As I suggested in another topic, we could have a Packaging portal page that would link to pages like Debian packaging, Windows packaging and MacOS packaging. Then the pages you created could be linked from the Debian packaging page...

Bump.

This information should definitely be in the Developer hub.

As per this thread, Rename: Compiling pages, I prefer to leave a space between the words and only capitalize the first letter or proper names.
* Debian_Unstable
* Debian_development
* Git_buildpackage

The pages need to be categorized as well

In my opinion, the three top level categories should be "User documentation", "Poweruser documentation", and "Developer documentation".

All other categories should not have the word "documentation". That is, I would put the page in the "Packaging" category, which itself would be a sub-category of "Developer documentation".

From NormandC's comment above, I've decided to create the following pages.

Packaging
* Linux_packaging
* Windows_packaging
* MacOS_packaging

The Windows and MacOS pages are still empty. Perhaps uwestoehr, sgrogan, apeltauer can fill something on the Windows side.
