PCLOS is a great distro, but there are missing programs and packages. Since the community is encouraged to help, I do intent to help PCLOS to become even better than it already is.
So, I want to package programs, and make them available for others.
I'm no way an expert in C, C++, and, so far, had few successes compiling programs, but the ones I could make work inspire me to continue ahead, and, overcome the problems and advance.
But there are some questions that raised in the process and, as there was not a FAQ about packaging, I'm asking these questions here:
1-Using Alien to convert DEB packages, is it allowed or not ? Since Alien works great, it would be of great use to increase the number of available packages for PCLOS.
2-There are some programs that don't come with the source, just the executable, and these would be packaged very easily, is there any problem packaging them ?
3-Is there a list of acceptable programs ? Or I can package whatever I want ?
4-What about icons, wallpapers and fonts ? Can I package them too ?
Well, these are my newbie questions, that raised at the moment, and I would like someone(some kind soul) to help me with them.
I did not find any other place in the forums these matters were discussed, so I asked them here.
I hope I'm not breaking any rule or stuff, and, I believe other questions will raise in the process.
Awaiting for your response,
I send my best regards,
