NAME

PkgForge - The Package Forge build farm system

VERSION

This documentation refers to PkgForge version 1.4.8

DESCRIPTION

Package Forge (PkgForge) is a build farm system. A framework is provided to allow multiple platforms (e.g. Redhat and Debian Linux as well as MacOSX) to build binary software packages from the same source packages.

The build jobs are registered and scheduled via the Registry which is based around a PostgreSQL database. See PkgForge::Registry for details.

The submitted jobs are processed and built using server daemons. See PkgForge::Server for details.

There is an, optional, web interface which provides access to the information stored in the Registry. See PkgForge::Web for details.
