After about a month of intensive work, I've released a new version of PkgBuild. The code base has more than doubled and many handy features have been added.
Some of what it now does automatically tries to make packages conform better to a Slackware standard, so they may be sort of controversial. I hope so! That way I can get a consensus
on some things and change them if needed before reaching a 1.0 version.
I'd love to have any suggestions for improvement or 'idiot alerts' that are necessary. I wrote it so I always do the right thing with it. Some of you have more experience with idiots, or are one
, may be able to find errors that I've missed.
I believe this to be the safest and smartest package maker yet for building Slackware packages, even though there are many areas that need improvement as I get there.
Features that you still miss have often already been in planning for awhile, but I welcome all suggestions, please.
You'll need installwatch to use it which you can get from here:
