dev1fanboy's "Maintainer walkthrough"


The purpose of this walkthrough is to give the very basics of converting Debian packages to Devuan. This means making sure that there is no hard dependency on systemd in packages. The good news is that it's much easier to package for Devuan right now than it is to learn packaging from scratch, so this is the best time to jump in if you want to maintain packages for Devuan.

It's important to point out that this is not a manual, there is no intention to document everything about Debian packaging in this one page. Rather this guide just shows you how to remove systemd from a package and make sure it is usable for Devuan. You really do not need to be amongst Debian's elite to help out with Devuan packaging, and everything here will be explained as clearly as possible.

This was recently removed from my wiki since KatolaZ's d1h guide is more up to date. But it might be useful to check the version in the archive to pick up some bits and pieces.
