    Got that latest or greatest scoop? Perhaps you have some important news for the Debian community? Submit a news item!

    Or perhaps you’ve written a rather ground breaking insight into some aspect of Debian and you feel compelled to share it with others? Knock up a longer editorial article and send it to the editors.

    General feedback should be sent to staff@debianplanet.org

    IRC
    The place to get help on a Debian problem (after reading docs) or to just chat and chill is #debian on irc.oftc.net.

    Many of the Debian Planet staff live there so pop by and say hello.

    Debian Planet also has its own channel on the same network called #debianplanet.

    Setting up your own apt source?
    Submitted by Anonymous on Tuesday, November 30, 1999 – 00:00
    I am a hobbyist coder and a Debian fanatic. I have lately discovered the joys of making Debian packages. I was wondering if I could set up an apt source containing only software written by yours truly, so that in the remote chance that someone is interested in said software, they could add something to /etc/apt/sources.list and apt-get my not-so-impressive software. How would I lay out the directories, what special files would I need, how do I make/update them, and what would I need in sources.list?
