I'm trying to upload packages to my PPA for the first time.
I want to use the PPA for customized versions of the OpenStack Compute (nova) project, so I tried to do a test by uploading packages corresponding to the bexar release of this project (lp:nova/bexar), with a new version number and changelog entry. I signed the source packages using my OpenGPG key, which has been uploaded to the ubuntu keyserver:
$ dch -v 2011.1-0ubuntu2-isi1 -D lucid "ISI bexar build #1" $ dpkg-buildpackage -s -rfakeroot -tc -D -k4C8A14AB
When I tried to upload the files to the repository, it seemed to work (real email obscured):
$ dput ppa:lorinh/ppa nova_2011.2~bzr663-1isi1_source.changes Checking signature on .changes gpg: Signature made Fri 11 Feb 2011 03:52:50 PM EST using RSA key ID 4C8A14AB gpg: Good signature from "Lorin Hochstein <lorin@...>" Good signature on /home/lorin/packaging/nova_2011.2~bzr663-1isi1_source.changes. Checking signature on .dsc gpg: Signature made Fri 11 Feb 2011 03:52:44 PM EST using RSA key ID 4C8A14AB gpg: Good signature from "Lorin Hochstein <lorin@...>" Good signature on /home/lorin/packaging/nova_2011.2~bzr663-1isi1.dsc. Uploading to ppa (via ftp to ppa.launchpad.net): Uploading nova_2011.2~bzr663-1isi1.dsc: done. Uploading nova_2011.2~bzr663-1isi1.tar.gz: done. Uploading nova_2011.2~bzr663-1isi1_source.changes: done.
However, the packages aren't listed on my PPA page. If I try to upload again, I get the error:
$ dput ppa:lorinh/ppa nova_2011.2~bzr663-1isi1_source.changes Package has already been uploaded to ppa on ppa.launchpad.net Nothing more to do for nova_2011.2~bzr663-1isi1_source.changes
Am I supposed to do something next? How do I track down what wrong? As of this writing, it's been a day and a half since I've done the upload.
Edit: I tried this again, and I received the email notification. I used a slightly different set of flags for dpkg-buildpackage the second itme:
dpkg-buildpackage -S -sa -rfakeroot -tc -D -k4C8A14AB
