This is a repo of Debian i386 packaged
versions of my stuff for use with
apt instead of individual
downloads. The tree starts at

The packages were built on an i386 of an only moderately up-to-date "testing" at release time. All the Emacs things and most of the Perl are architecture "all". There's an amd64 pool which has just those "all" packages. On other archs something like the following might work to take just the "all" packages (or perhaps amd64 instead of i386, and new enough apt),

Presently only some sources are in the repo but going to have all soon. The
intended use is convenient rebuilding of packages against newer or older
libraries. The simplest is by
apt, but things like
pbuilder can do whole environments and chains of depends.
apt-get source --compile libfile-locate-iterator-perl
If tests fail for a bad reason then try skipping with
DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS=nocheck apt-get source --compile ...
The Perl XS packages are built for Perl 5.28.1 but can be rebuilt from source for other versions. Perl minor versions are usually upwardly binary compatible but not major versions, requiring an irritating rebuild of all packages.
On non-i386 it might work to build and install binary dependencies
individually and then let
apt-get take the "all" packages as
The Emacs packages might have debhelper blobs which only work with
version 2 and up. Those
emacsen-common bits were designed to
reduce dependencies but result in an undeclared dependency on its version 2 or
higher. That version is now a while ago. The symptom of running with earlier
is no byte compiling at package install.

.dsc are signed with my
key. The Release file etc has SHA256 digests signed by 4096R so should
work with Apt circa 2016 refusing SHA-1 (due to whatever computing power or
algorithms approaching the time when it might no longer be secure).
With recent Apt, it may be necessary to tell Apt to trust my key or it won't
even make packages available. This is annoying but it's an end-to-end check.

The "other" packages are things from elsewhere put into debs. No guarantees about the quality, security, etc, except they seem fine. Each maintainer version is "0.1" or "0.2" so if/when there's a packaged version in the Debian archive it'll be higher and so hopefully preferred by apt etc.

libgt-perl (about 1.1Mb deb) is the Perl modules of
Genius Trader made with the
debian/ dir. This package is enough for programming
and for the Chart tie-ins. The Genius Trader
scripts aren't in a deb here.

The resulting deb has a static linked copy of the TA library, per its
interface build rules, so there's no separate C library deb.
