This is the basic packaging process that almost all the packaging systems will need to go through.
Getting The Source
The packager needs to get hold of the source code. There are two ways of doing this. Firstly, you can check it out of Bazaar directly, like so:
$ bzr co lp:openlp trunk
Or alternately, you can download the source tarball from SourceForge.net:
Preparing For The Build
Once you've checked out the code, you need to prepare OpenLP for the build.
Firstly, you'll need to compile the .ts files into .qm files, like so:
$ for TSFILE in *.ts; do lrelease $TSFILE `basename $$TSFILE .ts`.qm; done
In the debian package build, this is done via a Makefile, in the "build" target. If your packaging system supports it, it is recommended to get the packaging system to take care of this. Don't forget to add the packaging containing
lrelease to the build requirements.
