Branch: CURRENT, Version: 1.15, Package name: pkgtasks-1-1.15, Maintainer: jlam

pkgtasks is a shell script library to ease writing POSIX-compliant shell
scripts to handle common tasks during installation or removal of a
package, e.g.,

* creating groups and users needed by the package

* creating and removing directories with special permissions and
ownership,

* copying example config files to their final locations during package
installation, and removing them during package removal if they don't
differ from the example ones,

* reminding the user of files that may be customized after package
installation.
