rup - a sane and simple Ruby package manager
rup is a very simple Ruby package manager that keeps track of which package owns which files and not very much more.
It embraces established community conventions to work in a simple and straightforward way.
Just about everything you need to know to use grup
For code authors:
Place your code into lib/, use a subdirectory as namespace if you have many files.
Place your executables into bin/.
Make extensions build with “ruby extconf.rb; make; make install”.
Don't fuzz with the $LOAD_PATH.
Don't require Rubygems.
Setup your RUBYLIB to include .ruby and ~/.ruby (in that order).
Very easy to use and understand.
No runtime dependencies, it's just plain Ruby.
Easy to write tools for.
Easy to override system- or user-installed packages by installing them into the project directory.

What it doesn't do
These are things that will be addressed by wrapper scripts using rup.
