View Full Version : [SOLVED] Including new application in Ubuntu

November 9th, 2008, 09:40 PM
I develop netactview (http://netactview.sourceforge.net). How can I get this application to be included in Ubuntu? I have 1000 downloads (probably almost as many users). Is this enough to be considered for inclusion?

https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuDevelopment/NewPackages describes the process.

Be aware that it can be very, very lengthy unless you befriend some MOTU.

This thread's old and already marked solved, but I would think that it would be better to get it included in Debian. All programs included in Debian are also included in Ubuntu.

Here's a good guide about how to package your program and get it included in Debian: http://www.debian.org/doc/maint-guide/.
