Packer

Not Rated
Description
Packages are a great convenience for gurus and new users alike. Thus, users may be less inclined to use software that is not packaged. This is unfortunate for GNU/Linux software developers since packaging software is a huge pain, especially given the huge variety of packaging formats.

Packer helps to automate this process. Using a text-based wizard, packer can collect all the information regarding a program needed to create a package. Then, a simple command is all it takes to create a debian directory (used to build debian packages), RPM SPEC files (for Mandriva, SuSE, and Fedora/Red Hat), and autopackages spec files (autopackage is a system for creating distribution-neutral installers with dependency handling). These files are of a similar quality to hand-crafted ones. Packer can also automatically build the packages themselves if requested.
