Re: [alpine-user] How do I creating a binary only package?

Hello Dan,

just create a package with abuild / apkbuild.
In your APKBUILD file you have to provide a package() function which
copies your binary data to it's final destination.
You will have to provide a build() function. Than one can be empty (or
you return 0) - but it has to be there.
