dput completed successfully, but refreshing the corresponding launchpad page doesn't render a change, it still says "no updates" for this PPA, am I doing something wrong ?

Recheck your ppa – Tachyons Jul 5 '12 at 9:58

  1. dput ppa:warlock/spell (or whatever)
  2. Wait for email from Launchpad, whose subject should say (hopefully):

    [PPA warlock-spell] [ubuntu/precise] oohitsmagic 1.2.3-4~ppa1precise1 (Accepted)

    or if you messed something up:

    [PPA warlock-spell] oohitsmagic_1.2.3-4~ppa1precise1_source.changes rejected
  3. If the upload is successful, then you can check the status on the PPA page, where it should say 2 packages waiting to build (or similar), and you can click on them to see what the approximate wait-time is before the builds for the different architectures begin.

  4. Unless you want to keep pressing F5 (hey, I did that for my first PPA upload :), go get a coffee, take a nap, etc., but keep your eye out for the Launchpad email sent if your build fails, with a subject like:

    [Build #1234567] i386 build of oohitsmagic 1.2.4-4~ppa1precise1 in ubuntu precise RELEASE (warlock-spell PPA)
  5. If the build succeeds, that will be show in the status bar for your PPA on the right; note that even after this, you must wait for the binaries to be published in the PPA before you can go around apt-getting them (a green gear means wait, a check mark means published).

Wait 1 hour and 30 minutes, then reffresh the PPA page.
