mini-buildd Logo

mini-buildd is a custom build daemon for Debian-based distributions with all batteries included: I.e., it covers incoming, (distributed) building, installing, repository maintenance and repository delivery.

mini-buildd is developed in and for Debian. See the Debian PTS for package availability, git repository or bugs.

In versioning, mini-buildd follows the good olde "even(MAJOR)=production, odd(MAJOR)=development-style". Development versions (like 1.1.x, 1.3.x, ...) will hit Debian rc-buggy/experimental, production versions (like 1.0.x, 1.2.x, ...) will hit Debian sid/unstable.

For Debian derivatives or past Debian distributions mini-buildd may also be available from The Hellfield Archive (should you adventure that road, be sure to prepare your system first for The Hellfield Archive as outlined there -- before using the mere cut-and-paste instructions below).
