Today I’ve started to write some PKGBUILDs for the linux distribution that I use, Archlinux: a PKGBUILD is a small script that works with the makepkg utility. It automatically downloads the source of the program, verifies the md5, configures and compiles it creating a new package, ready to be installed with pacman. It looks like gentoo’s emerge. It’s cool ;) Anyway, at the moment I am maintaining four packages and I am kinda enjoying myself. Let’s see if it will last :D
