There are many benefits to managing your software through the standard packaging system for your platform. This page is written for the benefit of:

  • future madagascar developers who want to prepare packages for distribution
  • system administrators who need to do their own packaging, such as for the purpose of easy, customized software management over a large number of machines

If you want to package a released stable version, you need to download the source code tarball. If you want to package a snapshot of the development version, you need to get the source code from the repository via svn, then run the admin/svn2tgz script to remove the svn directories, as well as other items that you do not want the final package to contain.
