- Accepts an API key, package name, package patch level, target language, target language version, target platform, and a list of file names, either via the command line or interactively.
- Makes sure that the command line executables are installed for both GPG2 and Fossil.
- Stages (adds and signs) the specified list of package files to the associated local checkout of the package file repository (see: "https://pkg.management/pkgd").
- Attempts to commits the package files, always on a new branch.
- Creates a script block to download the files using the Package Downloads Client, locked to the specific checked-in version.
- Signs the created script block.
- Submits the package metadata to the package repository server (see: "https://pkg.management/pkgr").
- API keys must be created by an administrator of the Package Repository Server.
- A Fossil login must be created by an administrator of the Package File Server.
- GPG2 must be installed somewhere along the executable search PATH.
- The Fossil binary must be installed somewhere along the executable search PATH.
- The Package File Server repository must be cloned and opened.
- The public key for the package maintainer must be added to the key ring trusted by the Package Client.
- The Package Uploads Client currently assumes that all files for a particular package will reside in the same directory.
- The directory immediately containing all the package files is the one that will end up being added to the Package File Server repository.
- Packages are (currently) always submitted to a new branch (branched off of "trunk" in production -OR- "testing" in the dedicated test instance).
- The script block submitted to the Package Repository Server always uses the check-in identifier; therefore, the branch does not matter.
