Bug#194409: ITP: debnest -- Nested Build System of Debian Source Package
Version: unavailable; reported 2003-05-23
* Package name : debnest
* License : GPL
Description : Nested Build System of Debian Source Package
I'm writing a debian build system to create debian binary packages
such that their original upstream sources include debian source
packages. In build-time, this system unpacks their original debian
source packages by 'dpkg-source -x' and propagates policy-defined
targets of debian/rules to the unpacked build-tree.
Description: Nested Build System of Debian Source Package
Debnest provides a build system to create debian binary packages
such that original upstream sources include debian source packages,
i.e. .dsc and other files such as .orig.tar.gz and diff.gz, or .tar.gz.
This allows as follows:
* Manage your own debian/ such as debian/rules, debian/control,
debian/changelog and so on separately away from their original
* Create your own tuned packages with your own DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS,
CC or something like that from their original packages without
specifying environment variables.
* Create your own tuned packages with applying pathces to their
original sources as well as debian/* files separating
them completely away from their original source packages.
* Make it possible to redisribute debian binaries which restrict
source-code from being distributed in modified form _only_ by
the distribution of "patch files" with the source code for the
purpose of modifying the program at build time.
