Projects / Autobuild


Autobuild is a package that processes output from building software, primarily focused on packages using Autoconf and Automake, and generates HTML summaries. The output includes project name, version, build host types, build host name, and indication of success or failure. The output is indexed in many ways to simplify browsing.
