Launchpad PPA – Can Binary Packages Be Uploaded?


Well, I have a launchpad account and a just set up a PPA.

Since I don't have generated source packages, I'd like to upload my binary packages to the PPA.

Though it seems not possible… Is there a way to avoid create source packages?

Best Answer

No. You can only upload source packages to a PPA, for security and licensing (open-source) reasons; Launchpad will then build it into binary packages for you.
