I think this document should be deleted. It does not provide any useful information at all.

  • You don't need check out abuild from git to be able to build packages. (using an official release of abuild is higly recommended)
  • abuild.mk have been replaced with alpine-iso.git long time ago.
  • the term 'build environment' made sense when we built alpine from gentoo. Now the 'build environment' is a normal alpine install + apk add alpine-sdk.
  • The doc mention nothing about how to use abuild to build packages, not even it mention that you need to do 'make && sudo make install'

In short this doc provides no relevant info. I vote for removing it and instead write an how to use abuild doc or similar. --Ncopa 14:45, 6 July 2011 (UTC)

Updated

This page was completely reworked in December 2011. I think that now this page is in better shape and contains current information. --Fab 16:26, 10 May 2012 (UTC)
