Bug#551629: ITP: ui-auto -- A set of shell tools to manage software project development

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: "Stephan Sürken" <absurd@debian.org>

* Package name    : ui-auto
  Version         : 1.1.9
  Upstream Author : Stephan Sürken <absurd@debian.org>
* URL             : https://sourceforge.net/projects/ui-auto/

  Programming Lang: Shell
  Description     : A set of shell tools to manage software project development

1. Release automation

First of all, there is support for automation of software
release around the 'ui-auto-release' tool; it currently (Oct
2009) supports the build systems autotools and cmake and the
version control systems cvs, svn and git. Its basic goal is to
automate the reoccurring administrative duties around software
releases (like NEWS/ChangeLog files, VC tagging, uploading,
...). It also has a non-interactive mode that makes it suitable
for automated snaphot builds from cron, and a special Debian
mode to automate Debian package builds.

Tools: ui-auto-release, ui-auto-ubs, ui-auto-uvc, ui-auto-release-multi

2. Development help

Secondly, there is also a set of tools to help develop from VC
checkouts (simply via environment variables). This is useful if
you develop on several projects at the same time having

Tools: ui-auto-env, ui-auto-shell, ui-auto-update

3. cmake and autotools library

There is small library for autotools (m4 macros) and cmake
(tests) to avoid redundancies per project for ui-auto
project. Using any of these is totally optional, though.
