The goal of fpm is to make it easy and quick to build packages such as rpms, debs, OSX packages, etc.
fpm, as a project, exists to help you build packages, therefore:
> mi6 new Foo::Bar # create Foo-Bar distribution > cd Foo-Bar > mi6 build # build the distribution and re-generate README.md/META6.json > mi6 test # run tests > mi6 release # release! !!! EXPERIMENTAL !!! > mi6 dist # make distribution tarball > mi6 upload # upload distribution tarball to CPAN
for automating Clojure projects without setting your hair on fire
