Since some week we have daily builds of VLC trunk on Launchpad .
Currently it provides binary packages for Ubuntu 10.10 (maverick). I
will extent it to build binaries for later Ubuntu releases once they are
The nightly builds page on videolan  is outdated. There are no debs
for Debian sid and Ubuntu intrepid. I recommend to replace these by .
First the trunk branch is imported into a Launchpad bzr branch. This is
normally done by Launchpad, but due to bug #402814 , the import fails
and I have to "import"  it manually on my own machine. A recipe 
merges the trunk bzr branch with a packaging branch, which is derived
from the Debian package. Then a source tarball is created and uploaded
to the PPA . This is done every day if one bzr branch changes. Every
member of the ~videolan team on Launchpad have access to the branches
and to the recipe.
 I am just copying all files from git to bzr. All history get lost.
