Publican packages for Ubuntu karmic

Andrew, whom I helped convince to switch to DocBook for writing Pacemaker documentation, pointed me to Publican, a DocBook publishing framework developed by tech writers at Red Hat.

Publican packages have been available in Debian squeeze for a while, but as of today are not included in Ubuntu. Thus, I built packages for karmic, which you may fetch by adding the following line to your /etc/apt/sources.list file:

deb http://people.linbit.com/~florian/ubuntu/publican karmic main

Then fetch my GnuPG key so you can verify the Release file’s integrity:

apt-key adv --keyserver pgp.mit.edu --recv-keys 7349B897BC759CF1

Now you can install with

aptitude update
aptitude install publican

… and then hack away.

Ubuntu folks (Andres, that means you!), can we have this in the upstream Ubuntu distros please?

    Hello Florian,

    Since that package is in Debian testing, it should be synced automatically into Ubuntu Lucid before the Debian Import Freeze. I’ll track it though.🙂
