EPM

The ESP Package Manager (EPM) is a simple tool that generates software and patch distributions in various formats, including AT&T software packages ("pkg") used by Solaris, Debian ("dpkg"), HP-UX software packages ("swinstall" or "depot"), IRIX Software Manager ("inst" or "tardist"), portable (installation and removal scripts with tar files), and Red Hat Package Manager ("RPM").

            While I really like the idea of EPM , my hope is that the next upgrade is
            to the documentation. As is , I've spent days trying to sort my way through getting
            the RPM form of my packages created.

            For me the goal is to stop having to create my packages (DEB,RPM etc ) by hand ,but alas I just cannot seem to sort out the incantation for RPM.

            I guess , being a developer myself , I can understand how the creation of docs can be a challenge, but making effective documentation is at least as important as other development chores.

            I would even be willing to help refine the documentation in the course of understanding them.
