I’ve set up a debian repository that you can help test the release package before it gets uploaded into debian proper.
To try it out, add the following to your /etc/apt/sources.list
deb http://fosiki.com/Foswiki_debian/ stable main contrib
deb-src http://fosiki.com/Foswiki_debian/ stable main contrib
and then run
gpg --keyserver the.earth.li --recv-keys 379393E0AAEE96F6
apt-key add /root/.gnupg/pubring.gpg
OR (if theearth.li doesn’t work for you)
apt-key add FoswikiReleaseGpgKey.asc
apt-get install apache2 foswiki
This repository contains about 281 (Apr2011) foswiki-extensions – auto updated nightly direct from foswiki.org. The packages have as many dependencies as I was able to coerce my build scripts to work out – but there is more work needed.
