Project-Builder aka pb : Building multiple Linux packages frome sources.

Project-Builder is a new tool designed to help projects producing packages for multiple Linux distributions and architectures, on a regular basis aka "Continuous Packaging". It represents the 3rd generation of a build process initially created for the MondoRescue project, gathering 3 years of software build experience tied to 20 years of Software Engineering experience. Its value add is around a macro system, the independance of VCS (SVN, Git, Mercurial, CVS, ...) and packaging system (RPM, deb, ebuild, ...), a set of virtual machines or virtual environments and their management, the integration of all phases from VCS extract up to delivery, ... It has been rewritten from scratch to be independent from projects and now supports many FLOSS HP projects. It currently helps building packages for LinuxCOE, fossology, netperf, rinse and collectl.

The presentation will describe the needs of the various people around a FLOSS project (user, admin, developer, packager), how packaging is a must have in the project, why package early, package often is the right mantra, and how Project-Builder can help them all achieve those goals.
