l3build – A testing and building system for

The build system supports testing and building 3 code, on Linux, Mac OS X and Windows systems. The package offers:

  • A unit testing system for code (whether kernel code or contributed packages);
  • A system for typesetting package documentation; and
  • An automated process for creating CTAN releases.

The package is essentially independent of other material released by the 3 team, and may be updated on a different schedule.
