Could Package Builders Please Describe Them?
« on: October 17, 2005, 08:12:31 am »
Just a quick request: so many people are doing good work compiling packages at the moment that it's hard to keep up.  I know it's not difficult to find out what each mysterious new piece of software does, but it can get frustrating digging around each time so it would really help me, and I'm sure others, if you could just really briefly describe what it does when you announce you have built it.

Very many thanks!

Ditto.  If you are installing from the package manager you can read the description before download.
