vpackager is a tool for building and installing software from source code. Relies on sbbuilder to keep things standard to some point. Designed with 2 goals in mind: 1.) Make it easy for new linux users to install software. 2.) Help project contributors (packagers) by providing a centralized

workplace and build packages that are up to standard for the online repositories. Because it relies on sbbuilder, vpackager creates a valid source tree complete with package descriptions and dependency information.
