Old instructions

This step is optional, but will automatically report your bug numbers and update your signature file if you like it to. Also generates statistics from that data.

Reporting to the 5-A-Day log

  1. Add the following line to your /etc/apt/sources.list:

    • For Intrepid:

      deb intrepid main
    • For Hardy:

      deb hardy main
    • For Gutsy:

      deb gutsy main
      deb gutsy main
      deb gutsy main

      You can also use the "Software Sources" Editor:

  2. Install the five-a-day package:

    sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get install five-a-day
  3. Tell 5-a-day which Launchpad user you have:

    bzr launchpad-login <LP Login Name>

    - please note: this is not the email address you used for signing up for LP, but the last part of the URL that redirects you to (everything behind the ~ sign).
    e.g. The user dholbach would type in:

    bzr launchpad-login dholbach
  4. If you haven't done so, add your SSH key to Launchpad. If you don't have an SSH key, follow the instructions on this page to generate one. (Else 5-A-Day is not going to work.)

  5. Run 5-a-day --add:

    5-a-day --add <bugnumbers>

    For example:

    5-a-day --add 123456 123457 123458 123459 123460
  6. Done. Smile :-) (Please note: you can also use the 5-A-Day applet - see below.)

Further notes:''

Update ~/.signature

  1. Follow the steps above.
  2. Run:

    5-a-day --update

    and it will automatically update your signature. (It will also preserve an old ~/.signature file if it finds it.)

  3. Make sure your mail client picks up the shiny new ~/.signature.

Generate a blog "signature"

  1. Follow the steps above.
  2. Run:

    5-a-day --update --html
    and it will spit out HTML code you can add to your blog entry.

5-A-Day Applet

  1. Add the PPAs as mentioned above.
  2. Run

    sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get install five-a-day-applet
  3. Right-click on your GNOME panel, add the 5-A-Day applet to it.
  4. Work on a bug as mentioned above.
  5. Drag the Firefox / Epiphany tab on the applet, done.

Check out this video to see how it works.

Contribute within your LoCo Team

We explicitly want LoCo teams to be in this. Sure the motu team would do great, the bugsquad too but that would be cheating, wouldn't it? Smile :-)

  1. Run

    5-a-day --add-team <your LoCo Team's LP ID>

    for example:

    5-a-day --add-team ubuntu-berlin

    (Note: You need to be a member of that team.)

  2. If you're unsure what your team's Launchpad ID is,
    1. check out your Launchpad team participation page.

    2. find the LoCo team you're member of

    3. click on it
    4. check out the URL in the URL bar of your browser

Tagging 5-A-Day Bugs

This new feature is particularly useful during events like Hug Days or Bug Jams.

  1. Make sure you have five-a-day version >= 0.26 installed.

  2. Run

    5-a-day --add-tag tag-you-are-going-to-use
  3. Add 5-A-Day bugs as usual.
  4. ...
  5. Run

    5-a-day --remove-tag tag-you-are-going-to-use
    to stop using the particular tag.
