About PackMan

What is the Packman team doing ?

We build software packages to enable users to easily install and remove software on Linux. More specifically, we do so for software that is not shipped as part of distributions or that are shipped as an outdated version.

Contribute

Can I contribute to your project ?

Yes. Contact us on our mailing-list (packman@links2linux.de) and we shall send you the required information.

Long-time participation within Packman is associated with a certain investment of time on your side. Once created packages should be maintained and upgraded as soon as a new version of the software is available, given it is also newer than the version shipped as part of SUSE Linux.
You should also bring along some know-how about RPM packaging. We do have a few scripts that ease the maintenance and updating of RPMs, but those won't take the real work away from you.
There are also a few rules and policies that must be followed when building RPMs.

You must also be prepared for higher internet traffic on your end, as you will need to download the latest versions of packaged software, keep your SUSE system up-to-date and upload your packages onto the Packman FTP server.

It is also strongly desired that you provide your packages for the latest SUSE Linux version and at least one version before. That also means doubled system maintenance efforts.
