Oh, uh, yeah, that.
1) It's written in es(1) for no particularly good reason.
2) It's horribly named because I didn't originally intend it to be
used by anyone other than myself.
3) It isn't really a build-entire-distribution type thing; it's more
intended to be used on a day to day basis with quinn diff.
4) It *won't* mail the source maintainers unlike other autobuild
scripts I won't mention; if you do end up using Netgod's script
please turn this feature off. A lot of maintainers (myself
included) don't appreciate unsolicited ``your package built fine;
how was your day?'' mails.
Despite the above, me and Christian and a couple of other m68k people
have happily built thousands of packages with it for m68k. If anyone
does use it, please do mail me with any problems/whatever.
Upcoming functionality will be the ability to munge changes files to
add frozen to the distribution automagically and then resign.
Whenever frozen actually appears that is.
James - who just made quinn diff run faster. I think.
