The plan for the new LCFG build tools has always been that they should be packaged as “standard” Perl modules. The idea being that this should help people who want to port LCFG to new platforms or just work on platforms other than those directly supported. A direct consequence of this is that they can be uploaded to the Comprehensive Perl Archive Network (CPAN) which vastly improves distribution of the software. Putting Perl modules onto CPAN means they can be easily converted into RPMs using cpanspec, Debian packages using dh-make-perl or just installed directly using the CPAN shell which is shipped as part of the standard perl distribution. I’ve now uploaded most of the build tools packages, only LCFG::Build::Tools is still to go, here’s the links:
