Bug Description

As discussed previously, we're trying to publish the documentation of the APIs in the Ubuntu platform at http://developer.ubuntu.com/api/

This is a bug to track the progress for the task of creating a libgrip-doc package with the documentation present in the source code, or alternatively ship a gir file so that we can extract the relevant information from it.

Here's the overview of the overall status at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DeveloperUbuntuComApi

Thanks a lot for this!

I was about to add the libgrip documentation to developer.ubuntu.com/api, but I couldn't find the libgrip-doc package with the documentation in the archive.

Is there any additional step necessary to publish a libgrip-doc package?

I think the -doc package still needs to be seeded into Ubuntu. It's available in the uTouch daily archives https://launchpad.net/~utouch-team/+archive/daily but not the Ubuntu archives.

In that case, is it just a matter of submitting a MIR for the
libgrip-doc package?

If that's all what's needed to have online libgrip documentation, could
perhaps someone in the DX team do the MIR?

Thanks!

It's not a question of seeding or MIR. The libgrip source simply doesn't build a libgrip-doc binary. Also, I don't think it's really necessary to have a separate -doc, for small libraries the documentation usually just goes into libgrip-dev.

I was about to push this into lp:~utouch-packaging/libgrip/ubuntu, but it's out of date wrt. to the archive.

Attaching a debdiff how to install the documentation properly: Files go into /usr/share/doc/, and we provide a gtk-doc symlink. This works properly with devhelp (I tested), and is Debian Policy conformant.

I can upload/sponsor this, if someone tells me to go ahead with this and ignore the inconsistent Vcs-Bzr: branch.

    oneiric branch to match what's actually in the archive.

    /usr/share/doc/.
  * Add debian/libgrip-dev.links: Provide a gtk-doc symlink for devhelp.
