OpenG Package Builder (OGPB) Overview

The OGPB provides a high-level user interface based tools for package building. If the OGPM is also installed, the OGPB can utilize its services for automatic dependency and conflict specification in the created package. Package build information is kept in a package build file (.ogb). This information is much simpler than that contained in a package spec file and deals with information more related to the development system, package sources, and configuration.

OGPB Design Goals

Easy Package Creation

Provide a way to easily package tools for distribution to other developers without worrying about the spec file format.. It will automate the creation of Spec files from a simpler .ogb (OpenG Package Build) file.
