Code Shipping - Manifest file (packaging)

Table of Contents

1 - About

In software packaging, it is common to list the contents of a distribution in a manifest file.

This file simply enumerates the files which are included in the distribution, either for processing by various packaging tools, or for human consumption.

The term is a loan from shipping, where a ship's manifest would list the crew or cargo of a vessel.
