This is a reference document meant to provide packagers with guidelines on how to package Trinity.

General

  • Prefer splitting big packages (tdebase, tdegraphics, koffice and such) into smaller packages by component.
    • If you do this, consider providing the appropriate meta-packages.
  • Prefer a prefix under the /opt hierarchy (e.g. /opt/trinity or /opt/tde). It is generally considered a good packaging practice to install big packages into /opt.

Individual packages

Upstream

  • Consider getting in touch with us if you want to provide official packaging for your distribution.
