Testing debian packaging

In order to test debian package changes submitted via Differential, The Release Engineering Team has set up a pair of Jenkins jobs which work as following:

  1. Automatically build debian packages from differential changes
  2. Publish the packages to deployment-prep for further manual testing.

How it works

The git repository for your package needs to have the following prerequisites:

  1. meta-build-package tag in phabricator
  2. A working git-buildpackage configuration.

That's all you need and everything else should be fully automated. When a differential revision is submitted, harbormaster will cause jenkins to run beta-build-deb to build a debian package, then beta-publish-deb will publish that package to the apt repository at http://deployment-mira.deployment-prep.eqiad.wmflabs/repo

Once the package is built and published you simply log into any deployment-prep instance, run apt-get update && apt-get install {package}
