While DevOps are comfortable with continuous integration and automatic tests, the area of continuous packaging has not been given the attention it deserves.
Even with Containers, delivering an application using software packages provides multiple advantages with regards to file based installation: it allows to manage dependencies more easily, to provide metaData, checksum and signature mechanisms, to deal with packages repositories.

But doing that in a continuous packaging approach means that the generation of these packages is fully automated and part of the build process of the software. As a consequence, it eases the various steps of a solution life cycle (installation/uninstallation, deliveries & metaData management)

This presentation will demonstrate such a setup using project-builder.org and how this allows the MondoRescue project to deliver packages for 130+ distros tuples
