As I understand it, packaging recipes are a way to automate packaging into a PPA from a bzr branch. What I'm not sure of is how to go about setting one up. I have read the documentation but for some reason it still leaves me a litte confused about what to do.

  • What is the step by step process of setting up a recipe? (A 'hello world' example would be useful)
  • What needs to go into the branch? (eg. debian/ directory)
  • What do you write in the recipe text field and what does it all mean?
