Bug Description

It would be awesome if launchpadlib (and its deps) were available in a PPA, built for Lucid and Maverick and perhaps older ones too.

nightlies would be interesting; releases might be more interesting. For instance, bzr could depend on a releases PPA, in its PPA.

I understand the launchpadlib team don't have a lot of knowledge here, so this is a placeholder to say 'when you want to tackle this, give me or jamesw or spiv or raof or wgrant or abentley - well - lots of people - a shout'.

I'd love to see this happen, particularly the releases. (I'm honestly much less interested in the nightlies.)

Unless strongly dissuaded, I would probably want to make the release script in launchpadlib (which we use for releasing launchpadlib and all of the lazr.* packages) do the right thing automatically. Then, at the same time that we release on PyPI and launchpad, we would also add the release to the appropriate PPA.

Triaging as low from our own perspective, but if there's a clamor for this, we'll listen.

Changed in launchpadlib:
status: New → Triaged
importance: Undecided → Low
