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.

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

Hi,

of course:
osc sr $SRCPRJ $SRCPKG $DSTPRJ $DSTPKG
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!
Dominique
