An important and often overlooked issue with packaging is the legal requirements to include the license text/file of all included software/libraries.

For example, Saxon itself depends on many bits of software and its legally required to distribute the license agreement for each.

Add on Calabash and you need to distribute all dependent license files if you include any of the dependent libraries.

On packaging Calabash, it's been available on Arch Linux on the AUR (Arch User Repository) for a while:
Maybe that could help as a template?  There's not much to it - download the jar, and there's a launcher script.  Oh, and it depends on Saxon.  Which is included, but maybe you already have that in your packaging system, and don't want duplication.

I opened a request a while ago to add a formula for Calabash to the Homebrew Package Manager <http://mxcl.github.com/homebrew/>  (for OS X).  


Partly because I was fumbling Git newbie, and partly because the Homebrew devs are overrun with pull-requests (victims of their own success!  Homebrew is *awesome*), my original request just faded away.


I closed the original request and opened a new one <https://github.com/mxcl/homebrew/pull/9653>  (with more up-to-date info, and a more palatable commit history).  




If you’re on GitHub, and you use Homebrew, could you go to the pull-request <https://github.com/mxcl/homebrew/pull/9653>  and add a +1 vote?  (It would help Calabash get into the hands of more people! ☺)
