I'm creating customized binary versions of OpenStack nova packages (lp:nova) using their packaging scripts (lp:~openstack-ubuntu-packagers/ubuntu/natty/nova/ubuntu).
I create binaries by doing:
dpkg-buildpackage -b -rfakeroot -tc -uc -D
This creates a set of packages (python-nova, nova-common, nova-compute, ...).
In our customized version of the code (lp:~usc-isi/nova/hpc-trunk), we recently merged in some changes from another branch, and there's now a new file in our repository that wasn't in upstream:
This file isn't getting added to any of the packages, where it should be added to python-nova.
Why wouldn't dpkg-buildpackage be including this file? A more basic question: how does dpkg-buildpackage determine which files go in which packages? Is it related at all to the debian/watch file? This contains some URLs that are pointing to the upstream project.
