Wicd .deb packages

  |   Source

Hello world,

it's been a long time since I last posted something. Today, I want to let the world know about the availability of Debian packages for *`wicd <https://launchpad.net/wicd>`__*.

Since the release cycle of wicd is somewhat slow, I decided to provide automatically-built Debian packages for the latest revision of the upstream repository.

The automatic build process is possible thanks to Jenkins and the great jenkins-debian-glue, by Michael Prokop.

Here's the APT snippet, for those who dare:

# For the "upstream" version of wicd
deb http://jupiter.hanskalabs.net/debian/ wicd main

The repository is signed with a separate GnuPG key, which I signed with my main keys. You can download it or retrieve it from a keyserver, then you should add it to your APT keyring:

$ gpg --keyserver pgp.mit.edu --recv-keys 4D00F190
# gpg --export 4D00F190 | apt-key add -

Obviously these builds are not guaranteed to work :) but, since I myself use these autobuilt packages, I usually try to fix problems as soon as I notice them.

If you find bugs, or have proposals to improve wicd, please report them on launchpad!
