Project Summary

JHBuild is a tool designed to ease building collections of source packages (also known as modules). It uses “module set” files to describe the modules available to build. These files include dependency information that allows JHBuild to work out what modules need to be built and in what order to build what the user requested.

JHBuild was originally written for building GNOME, but has since been extended to make it usable with other projects. A “module set” file can be hosted on a web server, allowing people to provide build rules independent of JHBuild.
