Release of GSRC 2013.10.06

Item posted by Brandon Invergo <brandon> on Sun 06 Oct 2013 07:01:38 PM UTC.

I'm happy to announce the 2013.10.06 release of GSRC, the GNU Source
Release Collection. GSRC is a convenient means to fetch, build and
install the latest GNU software from source via a BSD Ports-like system.
Installing a package is as simple as

$ make -C gnu/hello install

You can find more information and the documentation at the GSRC website:

This release is a snapshot of the state of released GNU software at this
time. You can download this release at or,
you can download it from the nearest mirror at

Of course, to stay up-to-date with the latest package releases
in-between releases of GSRC, you may choose instead to checkout the bzr

$ bzr checkout bzr:// gsrc

And keep up-to-date with the latest releases:

$ bzr update

If you encounter any problems with a build script, please let me know
