A package was submitted to savannah.nongnu.org
This mail was sent to address@hidden, address@hidden
Tais M. Hansen <address@hidden> described the package as follows:
Package: Slackware Source Repository
System name: ssr
The purpose of this project is to ease various source package building for
Slackware Linux users. Today, users of Slackware are dependant on official
Slackware package releases, on the pre-built binaries on Linux Packages which
potentially could have been compromised in some way, or on their own skills at
configuring and building packages manually.
The project is basically a collection of makefiles crafted to help build and
install various packages on Slackware Linux systems, much like the Ports system
for BSD. It will automatically download sources, verify, extract, patch,
configure, build, package and install/uninstall/upgrade. It will also check and
follow package dependencies.
Currently basic fetch, build and package functionality is working. About 15
source packages can now be downloaded from their respective mirrors and built
by issuing a simple make in the package repository directory. I.e. \"cd
ssr/repository/development/pwlib && make\", will fetch the pwlib source tar
ball, checksum, extract, configure, build and prepare for packaging. The binary
packages are made with Slackware\'s own packagetools, making it a perfect
companion for any Slackware Linux system.
Basic makefiles and makefiles for the existing 15 sources are available via
email if needed (16kb).
