jhconvert

justhonestconvert Sugar to distro packages :)

The main purpose of this project is helping people to package Sugar for various non-mainstream GNU/Linux distributions. If a GNU/Linux distribution is not Debian/Fedora/Ubuntu based and there is a lack of human resources to maintain packages, this project could be valuable.

How it works

The general idea is to collect all distro-independent information in one place to minimize maintenance costs. The process for generating packages is:

  • Fetch dependencies from sugar-jhbuild (native sugar building system)
  • Add distro-independent content like common package dependencies, various strings, urls etc.
  • Use distro-specific templates to generate native packages

Supported distros

Currently supported followed distributions:

Packages
