howto distribute my software


Hi everybody
I almost finished developing software that I would like to distribute as a deb package.
My question is: How can I create a package that meets the dependencies for my Lazarus application?

That's good to hear. The more software the better...

Unless the Open Source Software you're about to release is only for Debian or Debianesque Linux distributions you should consider releasing it in a way that people can run the common './configure; make install;' commands or equivalent. That way you allow those interested to build installation scripts for common Linux distributions or even other Operating Systems. (If you don't dig that check Ubuntu and it's gazillion PPAs. That's confusing, inefficient, insecure.) When you release your software also please consider signing it.

What are "the dependencies"?
What is "Lazarus application"?

Information about creating Debian packages, if you consider to only deploy using Debian packages: https://www.debian.org/doc/manuals/m.../index.en.html
