#13 Issue closed: Packaging/distribution using Makefile ?

Labels: enhancement

Most projects use make for creating a new distribution, an RPM package or a DEB package from a source tree.

It could be useful to use the same methodology that packagers are used to by having a Makefile that has the following targets:

  • install
  • uninstall
  • dist
  • rpm
  • deb

During the make dist or make install phase we could check bash syntax, and we could even provide a make test target for unit testing.
