SYNOPSIS

autodist [options] [distribution] [version] [params]

DESCRIPTION

The Autodist is a source distribution management system that allows powerful mechanisms to define what is included in and excluded from a distribution, and what license the distribution is released under. It is also used to create the actual distribution source packages. Autodist allows distribution management in file, directory and file content level. Different distributions may include different portions of files, for example, excluding certain features from certain distributions. It is always guaranteed that anything not defined for the distribution, is removed automatically (files, file content, directories), thus ensuring that nothing is accidentally included in the distribution.

Autodist is closely related to the Autoconf and Automake tools, and complements the features Autoconf and Automake provides. It is especially targeted into circumstances where multiple distributions are created from one source tree. The Autoconf and Automake environment is mainly designed for one application per one source tree situations. Autodist provides mechanisms to create all kinds of distributions that can be created from one source tree. To be able to use Autodist, the Autoconf and Automake must be installed into the system.
