I have been using the great and handy sbopkg tool for quite some time and it works very well. Normally, I would just download the queue files collection and place it in /var/lib/sbopkg/queues. Recently, I heard about a nice little script called sqg that can generate queues files. I downloaded it from here, made it executable and placed it in /usr/local/bin.

Now, generating a single queue file, for example for QtiPlot is as simple as:

sqg -p QtiPlot

While generating all queue files is done by:

sqg -a


UPDATE (18.02.15): the script is also shipped by the sbopkg package in its documentation folder. For example, for version 0.37.0, it can found here: /usr/doc/sbopkg-0.37.0/contrib/
