View Full Version : Collaboration between Ubuntu and Debian

March 27th, 2012, 08:08 AM
I make same patches (in my branch) for one application in Ubuntu that have been merged, now I want to submitt this patches back to Debian (this is fair). How to make this, is there any tutorial for this job?

Thanks and regards.

the tool "submittodebian" from ubuntu-dev-tools is useful for forwarding changes to debian, the manpage describes the process which you can also do manually
to report a bug in debian use reportbug -B debian

make sure the patch also applies to the debian package.
