It helps you in creating Ubuntu .deb packages by guiding through the process with minimal fuss and maximum automation. GiftWrap also aims to help you in creating high-quality packages by helping you fill in as most of the package meta-information as possible - either by automatically detecting or explaining the options in an easy to understand manner.
* Creation of basic packages from source archives or folders
* Creation of debian package rules - so maintainer name, email, description, build-depends, recomments & etc. fields
* Automatic building of packages - so at the end of the process you get an installable .deb that you can share with others (along with a .changes & .orig.tar.gz file for uploading to a PPA)
Copy/paste the following into the terminal to quickly install:
