Quickly PPA

I finally managed to get a package being built by Launchpad. This isn’t much of an achievement though, since all the packaging work was already done by the developers of Quickly, whose projected I uploaded to a PPA. My contribution consists of changing two names to my own and editing the version.

The PPA is located at https://launchpad.net/~qense/+archive/quickly

Unfortunately I made a mistake with the version, I’ve just added ~ppa1 at the end, but I want to add the Bazaar revision as well in newer versions, something I forgot here. Any thoughts on the possibilites of adding ~bzr{rev-nr.} somewhere?

I’ll manually try to update the package and the end of every day(CEST), provided there’s a new revision.

What is Quickly? According to the ‘Quickly Help Index’ it’s a set of choices about writing apps for Ubuntu.’ Basically, it’s an application that creates a stub of a program for you based on a template. At the moment there’s only one template, which creates an Ubuntu project in Python.

If you’ve created a nice template that isn’t included in the branches yet you can always mail me with a request to add it to the PPA. But I’d recommend you to first try to submit it to Quickly.

(By the way, I’m not involved in the Quickly project, I just sent the source files to my PPA.)
