Last changes on pmkscan
The pmkscan tool has been greatly improved lately. It is now generating both pmkfile and makefile from source scanning.

So a new page has been created to show what this tool is now able to do. You can already look at the two latest samples at the following URL :

Those samples have been done with the latest sources (posterior to the latest snapshot).

CVS statistics
As sourceforge is unable to provide CVS statistics since a long time now we decided to provide our own statistics.

Unfortunately they are updated manually as sourceforge does not provide any way to such process.

Anyway those statistics would be interesting for people that want to follow the developement process of pmk:

Project status
Some have maybe noticed that pmk's activity has slowed down since March of this year. The reason is simple: after being unemployed for a long time i found a new job.

That said the project is still alive and is attracting more potential users. We still have a lot of work to do for the 1.0 release but after more than one year spent in the project i'm quite happy of the actual status.

I've been able to make a working pmkfile for BlueFish. The next step would be to test pmk with a greater project like for example MPlayer.

Feel to test pmk and to discuss on our mailing lists.

Yes but instead of having thousands of shell scripts that can be trojaned there is only one remaining with pmk.
That said pmk can configure itself, so if it's already installed on your system you don't need to use the shell script again.
To finish, the script is not as big as a configure script and a lot more simple. So it's not so easy to include a trojan ...

You suggestion has been appreciated but as said above we still think that this mention is true.
