  Open Source projects - buildRPM


     The goal of this project is to automate a 'hands-off' production of a RPM based ISO CD image from a handful of SRPMs. With the roll-out practices and necessities of the market, Red Hat, SUSE, and Mandrake seem to be driven by factors which induce the release of only security related patches between minor releases.

     Stale source packages of non-security related matters, and delay to general release of the 'latest' of a given package, as well as a desire to facilitate cross-porting to less popular architectures (viz., Alpha, SPARC, MIPS), and back-porting packages to prior release hosts, are among the driving factors for the project.

     This project is in the preliminary stages. A very low volume mailing list is at http://www.colug.net/mailman/listinfo/rpmbuild-chroot

     On-line discussion occurs at #packaging on the irc.freenode.net servers.

     Send email to buildRPM@owlriver.com if this appeals to you for further discussion or participation.
