FREE SOFTWARE --
PackPack is a new open-source (BSD-licensed) project for building RPM and Debian packages from Git repository software sources. PackPack leverages Docker containers, semantic versioning, and can interface with the Travis continuous integration software.

PackPack was developed by the Mail.Ru Group for automating release management of open-source and closed-source projects. It aims to reduce push-to-package time "from hours to minutes" and supports building packages of OS targets including Debian, Ubuntu, Fedora, and CentOS. Building for these different targets relies upon Docker for using an OS image for that particular target.


That's the short story. If you want to learn more about PackPack for making it easy to build native packages for multiple distribution targets, visit their GitHub project site for all of the details on this new project.
