Welcome to cvmfs-contrib
cvmfs-contrib is a place for collecting software packages related to the CernVM Filesystem (CVMFS) that are contributed by the community and not supported by the CVMFS development team. It is hosted both on a github organization and on an OpenSUSE Build Service (OBS) project. The packages are built into the OBS project’s yum repositories for Redhat Enterprise Linux and derivatives, and in some cases packages are also built into its apt repositories for Debian and Ubuntu.
If you have any issues with a particular package, please submit a github issue for that package. If you would like to request adding a new package or have a question about the cvmfs-contrib project as a whole, please send it to firstname.lastname@example.org. Membership in that mailing list is managed through the CERN groups manager.
