Who would like to see a phplist debian package?

Postby jadoba » 1:02am, Thu 19 Apr, 2007

My name is James Barrett. I am interested in creating a debian package for phplist. Debian's maintainers guide suggests that new maintainers contact the upstream authors to see if they approve of their package being debianized. That is what I am attempting now :)

For the package to fit the debian policy, there will have to be some changes to where files are normally placed, IOW files can not be placed under the default apache document root (/var/www under debian, if apache was installed through apt). Instead, they will have to be under /usr/share/phplist and aliases or symlinks must be added. Additionally, no user-configurable files can be anywhere under /usr/share - therefore, config.pgp must go into /etc/phplist - this is crucial and cannot be avoided if seamless integration as a debian package is to be expected. I currently plan on putting a symbolic link named /usr/share/phplist/lists/config/config.php targeting /etc/phplist/config.php - Also, any other user-configurable files must go into /etc/phplist

I have not yet completely finished packaging up phplist.

For more information about debian policy:

Thank you for your time.
