Helm is the package manager for Kubernetes.

It is used to build Helm charts, which are packages of Kubernetes resources that are used to deploy apps to a cluster.


We're providing separate packages for helm 2 and helm 3, both may be installed at the same time.

Importing a new version

Both packages are build using Git-buildpackage. The imported upstream tarballs should include the complete vendor directory.

  • Check out the version (git tag) to import
$ ./debian/repack vX.Y.Z
  • This drops you into a shell with the git tag checked out. Do necessary changes here and commit
$ glide install --strip-vendor
# or
$ go mod vendor
$ git add -f vendor && git commit -m "added vendor"
  • Exiting the shell will build a tarball to import
$ gbp import-orig /path/to/tarball.tar.xz
  • Push changes (including the tag crated by gpb) to gerrit
$ git push gerrit --all
$ git push gerrit --tags

Building a new version

  • Check out the git repo on the build host
  • Build the package
$ GIT_PBUILDER_AUTOCONF=no gbp buildpackage -sa -us -uc --git-builder=git-pbuilder --git-dist=buster

For helm3 you need to build with debian backports enabled (GIT_PBUILDER_AUTOCONF=no BACKPORTS=yes gbp ...).
