Thank you for your interest in our project! The contribution process is detailed here:


This git repository contains all the packaging and patches required to build Rudder packages, in debian and RPM format.

Currently, rudder-agent has been tested and built on Debian 5-6, CentOS 5-6, RHEL 5-6, Ubuntu 10.04-11.04, SLES 10-11. Other packages are necessary on the Rudder root server only, and have only been tested and built on Debian 5-6 and SLES 11.


The easiest way to test and use Rudder is to install it from the provided Linux packages, see:

You can also build these packages yourself. Each directory in this git repository contains the packaging for one package, including the following

  • BUILD - contains temporary files during RPM builds

  • debian - is the main debian packaging directory as found in all debian packages

  • RPMS - contains binary RPMs after they are built

  • SOURCES - contains patches or original sources to package, and is used to download any other necessary sources

  • SPECS - contains RPM spec files

  • SRPMS - contains source RPMs after they are built

Before building any packages, make sure you download the required source files, by entering the SOURCES directory and running make:

$ cd <package name>/SOURCES && make
GIT_BRANCH_RUDDER is not defined by default. You have to replace "<put branch or tag name here>" by a branch or a tag name.
  • branches/rudder/2.3 (maintained versions)

  • origin/master (alpha version)
