Release of GSRC 2013.07.06

It’s time for my ceremonial late announcement of a GSRC release on my own website.

I’m happy to announce the 2013.07.06 release of GSRC, the GNU Source Release Collection. GSRC is a convenient means to fetch, build and install the latest GNU software from source via a BSD Ports-like system. Installing a package is as simple as

$ make -C gnu/hello install

You can find more information and the documentation at the GSRC website:

This release is a snapshot of the state of released GNU software at this time. You can download this release at or, to download it from the nearest mirror, at

Of course, to stay up-to-date with the latest package releases in-between releases of GSRC, you may choose instead to checkout the bzr repository:

$ bzr checkout bzr:// gsrc

And keep up-to-date with the latest releases:

$ bzr update

If you encounter any problems with a build script, please let me know at
