This is rBuild, the unified interface for Conary, rMake,
and rBuilder.  The purpose of this tool is to provide a single,
unified, and fully-documented interface (command line and Python
API) to developers using rPath technologies, using an extensible
plugin framework.

A shell script written using the command-line interface should be
relatively easy to transform to a Python program that uses the Python
API.  You can provide your own plugins that follow the same model.

Note that until version 1.0 is released, public APIs are subject to
change.  All documentation regarding stable interfaces is relevant
only to published stable releases; it is not in force for alpha
and beta releases, including 0.x releases and any automated builds.

API documentation is available at
or by running "make html" and viewing docs/developer/index.html (requires


Pylint Hooks

When developing rbuild and rbuild plugins, please consider using our
pylint commit hook.  This hook will run pylint against the files
you modified in your commit and warn you of any pylint problems.
Add the following lines to the file .hg/hgrc in your rbuild checkout:


Pylint problems that were caused by your patch should either be fixed
or disabled by adding a pylint pragma line.  The pylint pragma line
should look like this:

# W0611: unused variable ParseError - we want ParseError to be importable from
# even though it is not used.
# W0612: some other warning - reason why this warning is not being heeded
# pylint: disable-msg=W0611,W0612
