1 Introduction

Autobuild is a package that process build logs generated when building software. Autobuild is primarily focused on packages using Autoconf and Automake, but can be used with other build systems too. Autobuild generates an HTML summary file, containing links to each build log. The summary include project name, version, build hostname, host type (cross compile aware), date of build, and indication of success or failure. The output is indexed in many ways to simplify browsing.

The quickest way to get an understanding of what Autobuild can do for you, is to look at some example output. For now, we recommend looking at how Autobuild is used in the GNU Libidn project, see
