No. Most projects here are in svn and I'm exploring git
for a few of them. But the repositories are not nor will
ever be on a public server. There is no team development
on any of my projects, and I'm not planning any.

Well... they are *source* packages. All it takes is download,
unpack, cd, sudo make install. The 'make remove' is a good idea,
I will be adding it to new releases. OTOH, the installed size of
e.g. zita-rev1 (binary and *.png) is less than 100k, so little
is gained by removing it.

you can define PREFIX on the make command line as well, there's
no need to modify the Makefile

Installer managed packages (taking care of dependencies etc.)
should be provided by the packagers of your distro, there's
no way I can do this. I don't even provide them for the distro
I use myself.



There are three of them, and Alleline.
