How To Package Gambas

Please read me carefully

These pages won't explain you how to make the packages, but the structure they must follow.

Gambas must be packaged the way described in this document, because the development environment relies on this structure when it creates a package of a gambas project.

If a distribution does not follow this requirement, then the packages generated by the development environment won't be able to be installed, and the user will be very unhappy.

Not all distributions make correct gambas binary packages at the moment. So, if you are a packager from these distributions, and if you read this text, please tell us what should be done to help Gambas work on your distribution.

Thanks in advance!
