I'm administering a small network of Ubuntu boxes for a series of measuring machines in a laboratory. These machines depend on a small directory of MATLAB scripts in /usr/local/MATLAB/... in order to properly read data from a serial device.
I would like to be able to maintain this bit of code on Launchpad so that I could easily package this MATLAB script directory into a PPA and thus, easily maintain all of the computers in the lab...
So, I guess this could also be a Debain/Launchpad question, but -shrugs-.
I'm ready to upload the code to Launchpad and setup a ./debian directory... My question would be, what is the best way to package this simple directory of scripts so that it can work with Launchpad's auto-package system? Seems like there are a number of ways to do this? What's the best way to handle the debian directory? What's the best way to skin the cat?
I have experience doing this with other source code, and have maintained other projects through Launchpad. But never done anything as simple as "just put this directory into '/usr/local/MATLAB'. I also realize that I would not be able to put MATLAB as a dependence of this package of custom scripts.
Does this make sense?
Thank you for your help!
