Unipkg - Make debs from PKGBUILD files

Unipkg is a fork of makepkg.

It allows you toe make debs from PKGBUILD files. Using this:

unipkg -P deb

I haven't gotten to trying to see if it works on a Debian package but it looks similar to a normal "deb" file (except there are no md5sums for every file).

It's not finished yet but I'm working on it.

finally something to generate deb pkgs without writing one of those insane debian.rules files... smile

Re: Unipkg - Make debs from PKGBUILD files

Wouldn't it be easiert to repackage a pkg.tar to a deb file?

Well, I thought this could be used by developers, they'd just have to make a PKGBUILD and easily target different package formats.

I may just use this sometime, as I have always hated how Debian does their package creation, yet have a server which runs Debian. wink

Re: Unipkg - Make debs from PKGBUILD files

Yeah, I like this idea.  If wanting to build pkgs for different distro's this could come in handy.

AWESOME! I have to touch debian packages at work and it makes me feel dirty. Maybe this will help...

Okay, but I haven't tested it too much so if anyone wants to work on the project fork it on Github.
