Adding Your Feed

You first need to add an SSH public key to your launchpad account, if you haven't done so already. If your launchpad username is jrhakr, then you would go to:

https://launchpad.net/people/jrhakr/+editsshkeys

Then to add your feed, first check out the configuration files from the launchpad bzr tree.

$ bzr checkout sftp://jrhakr@bazaar.launchpad.net/~planet-ubuntu/config/main

Next, place your hackergotchi into the heads/ subdirectory:

$ cp ~/hackergotchi.png heads/jrhakr.png
$ bzr add heads/jrhakr.png

Once you've done that, add a stanza like the following to the end of the config.ini file:

[http://blog.example.com/~jrhakr/feed?category=ubuntu-only]
name = J. Random Hacker
face = jrhakr.png
nick = jrhakr

When you are satisfied that your entry is correct, it's time to check in your changes:

$ bzr commit -m "Added jrhakr to Planet Ubuntu"

Warning /!\ Please note that Planet runs from cron, and it relies on the work of some periodic events on the Launchpad server. Your changes could take up to two hours to take effect.
