The main purpose of this project is helping people to package Sugar for various non-mainstream Linux distributions. If Linux distribution is not Debian/Fedora/Ubuntu based and there is lack of human resources to maintain packages, that project could be valuable.
How it works
The general idea is to collect all distro-independent information in one place to minimize maintenance costs. Process of generating packages looks like that:
- fetching dependencies from sugar-jbuild (native sugar building system)
- adding distro-independent content like common package dependencies, various strings, urls etc.
- using distro-specific templates to generate native packages
Currently supported followed distributions:
