This is the project that packages Rust in various formats. Currently its job is to combine the outputs of the Rust build with that of the Cargo build, both in rust-installer format, and produce installers in a variety of formats.
First you need to acquire the components that make up the Rust installation, rustc, cargo, rust-docs, and - on Windows - rust-mingw, containing portions of the mingw toolchain necessary to make Rust work, as well as the corresponding source tarball (which is used to fish out some version information, yech). Note: neither the OS X nor Windows builds actually produce source tarballs at the moment. It would be much better for the binary tarballs to include the information the build wants (but also would be good for those builds to produce source tarballs).
The easiest way to do this is just:
$ ./fetch-inputs.py --target=x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu --channel=nightly
Which will fetch the official binaries that correspond to the given
channel and put them in the
To package from locally-built Rust and Cargo, just copy the tarballs
Then to package, e.g.:
$ ./package-rust.py --target=x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu $ ./package-rust.py --target=x86_64-apple-darwin --pkg $ ./package-rust.py --target=x86_64-pc-windows-gnu --exe --msi
--msi are optional, producing
platform-specific installers in addition to the tarball
installer. These only work when run on OS X or Windows.
