Apertium packages depends on hfst, cg3 libraries. These libraries often need update, while core packages are updated less frequently. bin-NMU is needed to avoid entire rebuild (and version bump) and quick upload.


1. Increment version

dch --bin-nmu

2. Update dependencies in debian/control.

3. Rebuild package.


If cowbuilder environment is not setup,

sudo cowbuilder create

Build the binary package,

sudo cowbuilder --bin-nmu "bin-NMU for library update" --build previous-package_version.dsc


  • Document bin-NMU + gbp buildpackage.
  • Fix errors with cowbuilder.
