This software is part of the GNU Project.

(decommissioned, see guix and gsrc) GNU Source Installer is a complete source packages management tool that automates configuration, installation, tracking and removal of source packages on modern Unix-like systems.

Its core functionality is provided by a shared library (libsrcinst),
that is used by two programs: a command line tool (sourceinstall),
and a gui (sourceinstall-gtk).

This is a tool intended for the user, not for developers: it has nothing to do with package creation.

Novice users should try the GUI first, where all the commands run
in the background are still visible in the included pseudo-console.

The program leverages on the GNU configure script and makefile conventions, so not all source packages can be handled by GNU Source Installer.
