Helper for converting Debian packages into Guix package definitions

Project description

Author: Hartmut Goebel <>
Version: 0.1
Copyright: GNU Public License v3 (GPLv3)

guix-import-debian reads the Debian package description and .debian.tar.gz from the debian package servers and creates a (hopefully useful) Guix package definition. Of course, this definition needs to be reworked to make everything fine for committing to the Guix project.

This basically saves you some typing and collecting data. it does not doe the remaining work for you.

Typically things to to are:

  • check the source definitons
  • check the inputs and native-inputs
  • check the synopsis and description
  • check the outputs
  • test if building works as expected
  • run guix lint
  • and all the other

The downloaded debian file for this package can be found in $TMP (may be changed using option --tempdir), so you can easily continue your research.
