From The Fridge :
This Friday (11 Aug.) at 01:00 UTC, Jordan Mantha (aka LaserJock) will be leading a MOTU School session on Ubuntu packaging in #ubuntu-motu-school on Freenode. If you have ever wondered how those .debs are made, this session will be a great opportunity get started. He will introduce concepts noted in the Ubuntu Packaging Guide and will point out resources for learning more about packaging. Everyone is welcome to sit in!
As always, IRC logs of the session will be posted on the Ubuntu wiki soon afterward, so people who are unable to attend can follow the transcripts.
For those of you who like to read ahead (you know who you are), some advance reading will be posted at the Packaging Basics school session wikipage.
There will probably be another session on friday 17:00 at UTC. I’m also interested in this so if this happens then I will definetely be there :).
