h1. BuildingDinner 

 The Dinner project is interesting from the build and packaging point of view. 

 * *dinnerd* is a simple standalone application, which has no dependencies (beyond libc and running on a Unix like system) 
 * *libdinner* is a simple library, with no dependencies.  
 Binary packages can be split into the runtime and the development sub-packages 
 * *hungryhacker* is a standalone application that depends on libdinner. So one can experiment with separate build and runtime depencies. 
   There is also a sample shell script in the sources, that can be installed as part of the package. 
 * *vdinner* is a standalone application that also has external dependencies (GLUT).  

 h2. Project repositories 

 The project is split in 4 different git repositories. This also allows to setup an exercise on using git submodules to manage the whole project. 

 h2. Build tools 

 Depending on the choice of the build tools, one need to add a mechanisme to be able to find libdinner as a build-time and run-time dependency for hungryhacker and vdinner. 

 h3. Packaging tools 

 The project can also be used to show challenges in builing binary packages for various systems. libdinner packages can be split into runtime and development sub-packages.
