Launchapad contains a wealth of packages that are not usable (they seem to be in source form or something).
For example, by searching for a "ndoc ubuntu" on google, I fell on the page https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/ndoc which basically has no description, no documentation, no readme, no .deb, no nothing.
Clicking on the "Code" tab shows different bzr branches for Trusty, Saucy, etc. but no .deb package. How can I get a .deb package for this software, or otherwise install it?
This package is just an example, I frequently encounter such non-installable packages on Launchpad.
Edit: Is there a specific tool or configuration to use for launchpad packages that downloads, patches and builds everything including dependencies, or are we supposed to use the standard
./configure, manually install all build dependencies, then
sudo make install?
