Is it possible to build the deb packages in house and then upload the binaries to launchpad PPA, instead of uploading the source package and let it build by the build farm ?

1 Answer 1


No it's not possible, as Launchpad only accepts source package uploads for reasons of trust - people need to be able to have the source to what was built, and you cannot put proprietary software into PPAs.

  • And what about xswat PPA with nvidia binary drivers?

  • @Extender: Most likely a "source package" where the specified compile rules is about putting the provided binary bits in place.
