Packaging does not have to be a dark science, especially when you can stand on the shoulders of those dark scientists and use the SlackBuilds they have already created.

Really any one can package when the work is already done.

Here is an example....http://www.opensourcebistro.com/Tutorial/VL60/VLpackaging/dillo/dilloeasy.htm

If you are short on experience but long on time, you can help rebuild the vl5.9 vl6.0 packages their newest versions for use on the upcoming vl7.0.

Anyone interested please chime in here.  If decent interest is shown I will see if one of the dev's can help me set up an IRC channel where I can make myself available for assistance.

Awesome, stay tuned. I'll set up a google doc that we can all use as a worksheet.

Here is a start.  Should be accessible to everyone so please no saboteurs.  Just add name and date to the package line you want to call dibs on.  I've tried to select packages I believe have no dependencies to begin with.

https://spreadsheets.google.com/ccc?hl=en&hl=en&key=tcuw02DuXr7regZ5bEBmi9A&authkey=CJOHnPQN#gid=0

Here is the tutorial again for the basic idea...
http://www.opensourcebistro.com/Tutorial/VL60/VLpackaging/dillo/dilloeasy.htm
Some more points...some obvious Smiley
Build always on the most recent vl7.0 you can find..as of now it is..ftp://ftp.osuosl.org/pub/vectorlinux/veclinux-7.0/iso-test/VL7.0-STD-Beta-1.iso
Easiest way to start would be to just
mkdir -p ./NAME/VERSION/src/
cd ./NAME/VERSION/src/
then use wget to put the vl60 /src/ contents into the /src/ directory you just created.
Make the changes as distribed in the video to the SlackBuild. Run as root.  Then install to test.

Because of the improvements to sbbuilder, I think a better way to do this would be to generate the dirs and slackbuild with sbbuilder, and then update it with the source and info from the old slackbuild.

Simple enough, just adds some copy past steps. 
First call to action..
Need a volunteer to continue to populate the google-doc page with the links to the various sources.  Anyone interested please PM me, this is pretty much a simple copy/paste assignment, but getting it onto the google-document will allow for tracking of who is doing what, so that we are not duplicating our efforts.

OK, here is the document beginnings...
https://spreadsheets.google.com/ccc?hl=en&hl=en&key=tcuw02DuXr7regZ5bEBmi9A&authkey=CJOHnPQN#gid=8

If you role over the "Role over for Volunteer comment" parts at the top row, you can see how you may be able to help.
You will see that packaging experience is not really necessary to be a big help.

The goal is to migrate the vl60 repos over to vl70 and update to the most current versions.

Thanks for checking it out.
Ken.

@hata_ph
Thanks a lot.

https://spreadsheets.google.com/ccc?hl=en&hl=en&key=tcuw02DuXr7regZ5bEBmi9A&authkey=CJOHnPQN#gid=8

Even if you don't know how to package. It would be a great help just to help find and post the links to the newest versions.

Thanks to Newt, Uelsk8s, hata_ph for helping with the repository migration project.
It was only the first day really and we had over 20 packages built. Not everything uploaded to toothandnail yet, but soon.

Anyone else with a little time on their hands is encouraged to stop by....

If I've missed anyone it is probably because you will appear an anonymous on my end.  So be sure to tag the area's you are working with a comment so I can give credit where credit is due.
Thanks again;

nicdm has joined the vl60->vl70 migration project. Thanks nicdm.  Close to 30 additional applications posted to the packages board today.  Just keeps growing, if all goes well we will do for the vl70 repositories what it took 2+ years to do with vl60.

To do so we will need more help.  Anyone else interested please see..

Packagers please check out this page on the vl60->vl70 package migration document.

Shows all packages submitted on the packagers board for vl70.  Should be useful to track progress and also for ensuring against duplication.

I'll do my best to keep it up to date.

https://spreadsheets.google.com/ccc?hl=en&hl=en&key=tcuw02DuXr7regZ5bEBmi9A&authkey=CJOHnPQN#gid=16

Still looking for volunteers from the community. Have something for all experience levels.  PM me or chat right on the google-doc.
Thanks;
Ken

Yes, the one in testing is built against an older version on ncurses that is no longer part of vl7.
