all packaging will be done within the next release.
15.04 will only introduce the repository.

I can help with packaging if needed. First I think we should streamline the build a bit - put all sources into the same repo and adjust build scripts so that "make install" is enough to produce the binary.

When that's done making a deb manifest is very easy.

If you like to, feel free!
This would really help us for the next release :)

I will try. Looking at the build script in [1] it really looks like ideally we should port the utility from OpenWRT's "libnl-tiny" to debian's full "libnl" Netlink Suite.

By the way, are the kernel sources/headers available in babanian's repo? I would prefer having proper kernel headers to build swconfig instead of cloning the whole OpenWRT repo just to grab a header file from it.

I started to look into this and so far it looks like it's fairly painless to use libnl-3.

I want by the same approach you did by cloning the upstream repo and removing UCI-related stuff.

Then I just did two things:
1) install the libs:
apt-get install libnl-genl-3-dev libnl-3-dev
2) reference them in the Makefile
-CFLAGS = -O2 -g -I ../src
+CFLAGS = -O2 -g -I /usr/include/libnl3/
-LIBS=-lnl -lnl-genl
+LIBS=-lnl-3 -lnl-genl-3

after this the binary builds with debian's libraries:

jekader@bpi:~/openwrt/package/network/config/swconfig/src$ make
cc -O2 -g -I /usr/include/libnl3/ -c -o cli.o cli.c
cc -O2 -g -I /usr/include/libnl3/ -c -o swlib.o swlib.c
cc  -o swconfig cli.o swlib.o -lnl-3 -lnl-genl-3
jekader@bpi:~/openwrt/package/network/config/swconfig/src$ ./swconfig 
swconfig list
swconfig dev <dev> [port <port>|vlan <vlan>] (help|set <key> <value>|get <key>|load <config>|show)

Need to test the result a bit and then I'll be off to packaging

Packaged the binary: [^]

The repo is basically a clone of openwrt's repo so it's a bit huge. However I wanted to preserve change history so this is the price for it.

Testers are welcome :) Hopefully the README is clear enough.
