I tried the newer version and it works[3]

Thanks Glenn





you did all the work! Now the 'last mile' is to submit the package
back to system:packagemanager.

You can do that either using osc sr (submitreq) or from the webui:
click on 'Submit Package'. Per default, it goes back to where you
branched it from (which is exactly correct).

Then the package maintainer can review your change, accept or decline,
hopefully with reason and guiding on how to correct it, and then
forward it to Factory.


What would be the full command using 'osc sr' syntax to submit the newer
package ? , have you an example of this ?
Thanks Glenn


of course:
this is the FULL command.. so in your specific case:

osc sr home:doiggl:branches:system:packagemanager smart system:packagemanager smart

There are many shortcuts to this.. for example, if $PWD is the directory of the package itself (so something like ~/home:doiggl:branches:system:packagemanager/smart (probably some other location of course), then you can do a simple 'osc sr' => it will read the CURRENT directories package (frmo .osc/*) and submit the package to where it was branched from (as noted in the _link file).

Once you issue the osc sr [...] command, an editor will open for the 'submit message'. Per default, it will add the diff of the .changes file.

Modify as neede, save and exit, control goes back to osc. If NO change was done, there is an additional question by OSC to actually submit (or abort).

hope this gets you going!
