releng-tool aims to provide a method to prepare a structured environment to assist in the release engineering of a project.
When dealing with the release engineering of a project, assets may be found in multiple locations and may require various methods to extract, build and more. releng-tool can be used to process a defined set of projects which identifiers where resources can be fetched, how packages can be extracted and methods to patch, configure, build and install each individual package for a target root.
For detailed documentation on the releng-tool project, please consult the releng-tool documentation.
- Python 2.7 or 3.4+
Host tools such as Git, scp, etc. may be required depending on the project being processed (e.g. if a package's sources fetch from a Git source, a Git client tool is required to perform said fetch).
This tool can be installed using pip:
pip install releng-tool (or) python -m pip install releng-tool
This tool can be invoked from a command line using:
releng-tool --help (or) python -m releng_tool --help
Examples of releng-tool projects can be found in releng-tool's examples repository.
