To add your feed, first check out the configuration files from the launchpad bzr tree: 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 {{{yourusername}}}, then you would go to:

{{{https://launchpad.net/~yourusername/+editsshkeys}}}

Then to add your feed, first install the "bzr" and "paramiko" packages if you haven't done so already:
{{{
$sudo apt-get install bzr python-paramiko
}}}

Next, check out the configuration files from the launchpad bzr tree.

If the checkout fails with a Permission denied error, it is likely that your SSH key isn't in Launchpad, or that you have your username wrong.

$ bzr add heads/yourusername.png

If you don't have a hackergotchi to add right away, comment out the line (using # at the beginning) or leave the entire line out.

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

{{{

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 yourusername, then you would go to:

https://launchpad.net/~yourusername/+editsshkeys

Then to add your feed, first install the "bzr" and "paramiko" packages if you haven't done so already:

$sudo apt-get install bzr python-paramiko

Next, check out the configuration files from the launchpad bzr tree.

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

Warning /!\ If this checkout fails with a "No branch found" message, it is likely that you are not listed as an [https://launchpad.net/~ubuntumembers Ubuntu Member.] Read more about how the [http://www.ubuntu.com/community/processes/newmember new member process] works. If the checkout fails with a Permission denied error, it is likely that your SSH key isn't in Launchpad, or that you have your username wrong.

Next, place your hackergotchiFootNote(Your hackergotchi should be scaled to roughly 100x100 pixels, give or take.) into the heads/ subdirectory:

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

If you don't have a hackergotchi to add right away, comment out the line (using # at the beginning) or leave the entire line out.

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

[http://blog.example.com/~yourusername/feed?category=ubuntu-only]
name = Your Name Here
face = yourusername.png
nick = yourusername

Warning /!\ Please use your real name at least somewhere in the 'name' field.

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

$ bzr commit -m "Added yourusername 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.
