Simplest Debian Packaging Guide?
I'm writing an IDE in C++ using Qt for the GUI and Qt Creator as an IDE. I have seen many tutorials about the Debian packaging system but I am still not sure I get it.
My program is not ready yet so I don't want to submit it to developer.ubuntu.com for someone to package it, but I want to do it to easily distribute a few copies.
I use Git for VCS and my code is hosted at Github.
I want to know if I should be keeping my code directory in a / related structure. Like: /usr/bin for the binaries and so on. This is for making the packaging process as easy as it can be. Do I need to modify the Makefile to put the binaries in /usr/bin or something like that? I do not have much experience with gnu make.
Is it a problem to host my code at Github? because I prefer it to launchpad and algo prefer Git to bazaar.
Also, can someone explain how to do the packaging process?
