Project Summary

Scoundrel?Scoundrel sneaks in behind Fink's back, rolls him, and puts presents in his coat pockets.

Scoundrel builds on Fink's broad base of software packages for the Mac, and provides a way to access supplemental repositories of packages. The hope is to provide a mechanism to reach newer, less tested software easily so that it can be proven and contributed back to the FinkProject. There certainly are other uses for extra package repositories, but that's left to the reader...

Why?Mainly, it grew out of my desire to have a very up-to-date set of libraries and applications around ruby and and RubyOnRails development for the Mac, without necessarily going through the approval process to update the packages in Fink proper. Fink package maintainers have a tough balance to reach between providing new, relevant software but also maintaining a stable environment for the users. I don't have that problem, my packages are free to break other packages, replace packages, or run a muck in a myriad of possible ways. I really hope they don't, but it's certainly a possibility without the benefit of a stringent testing process.

I also feel that there are times when it's convenient to package software that potentially you can't share with the outside world. Maybe it's that third-party application you and your work cohorts depend on, but it's 11-thousand steps to get it setup right. Wouldn't it be nice to just fink install third-party-app-from-hell ?? Of course it would, but you certainly can't share your buildfile containing your companies' license, etc.
