setup-packaging-environment(1) helps one to get started with Ubuntu development




setup-packaging-environment aims to make it more straightforward for new contributors to get their Ubuntu installation ready for packaging work. It ensures that all four components from Ubuntu's official repositories are enabled along with their corresponding source repositories. It also installs a minimal set of packages needed for Ubuntu packaging work (ubuntu-dev-tools, devscripts, debhelper, cdbs, patchutils, pbuilder, and build-essential). Finally, it assists in defining the DEBEMAIL and DEBFULLNAME environment variables.
