So as I’m trying to make an effort to start being more productive again, I’ve kicked this off by packaging my python application, GPX Viewer, for Debian. Last year, I created GPX Viewer to read GPS trace files in the GPX format, calculate some stats, and display the trace on a map.
I started packaging it for Debian/Ubuntu last summer, but sort of forgot about it. But at the weekend I finished it off and submitted it to the Python Applications Packaging Team, where a Debian developer (Piotr Ożarowski) kindly reviewed my packaging, advised of a few tweaks, and then sponsored my package for the repositories.
And it’s as simple as that. It’s now nicely in the repositories: http://packages.debian.org/sid/gpxviewer
Now, what shall I package next?
