I have an app ready to be submitted to Ubuntu Software Center. It is open-source and the source code is in Github. But I want to submit it under proprietary license ($0.0 however) as I would not have to package it then. There will be link to the source code in the about menu of the app though.

I want to know if I can just upload the source code or would I have to make .dsc .changes, .orig.tar.gz etc.


You can upload source code or compiled binary to software center . But it will take lot of time to appear in the software center. If you want to release your app quickly, create a debian source package and upload it

  • What do you mean by lot of time? Could you specify the amount of time in weeks or months? – Archisman Panigrahi Jul 30 '13 at 4:06
