Stardict in maemo extras

It's been about a month since I first downloaded Maemo 4.0(Chinook) SDK and tried to compile something like stardict. But there is much more difficult thing left to do - add .deb packages to maemo repository and create .install file.

Nokia did the right thing I think - usual user only needs to click on green button and choose place where to put an link in menu. The whole work is left invisible behind - to provide easy setup developer has to:

  • create SSH RSA private/public keys
  • create GPG keys
  • upload public key on maemo garage
  • write changelog info
  • sign changelog files
  • upload packages onto "extras" repository
  • create installation file

Of course, Nokia has half-draft tutorial for this. So after the long process sleepy contributor finally gets this pretty arrow:
Note: still beta!
