<< Lubuntu << Subteams

Wiki page for the Coding and Packaging sub-team of the Lubuntu project.


Seeds are the lists of packages we include in the lubuntu distribution. The minimal, boot, standard, desktop, and either ship or live seeds go onto lubuntu CDs. lubuntu seeds, being built on top of Ubuntu, inherit a shared set of seeds called the "platform" seeds. These platform seeds are maintained by Ubuntu Core Developers whereas the lubuntu seeds are primarily taken care of by lubuntu developers.

lubuntu seeds (as with all Ubuntu flavors) manage their seeds using the bazaar revision control system and host them on launchpad (build scripts pull the official seeds to build the cd).
