XML RedHat and Debian Package Creation
I've been asked by Kevin Fox <email@example.com> to post to this list
about an idea of a packaging program to ease the creation of Packages
for all packaging systems.
The general idea is that a file containing XML would be used to input
all of the options needed to create a simple package. Then, a program,
which has yet to be written, would interpret the XML and create the
necessary files to create either a RedHat or Debian or other package.
I realize that there may be some potential problems, but this may prove
to be a valuable tool.
Joe Debian user has written a piece of software and created a Debian
Package from the XML, using the software. He may easily provide a
RedHat package for others, of which there are obviously many RedHat
users -- or vice versa.
