Package Actions Contrib

Package Actions Contrib contains several package actions for Umbraco that are build by members of the community.

Package actions are great to include some custom functionality during the install of your Umbraco package, just by implementing the IPackageAction interface and the use of Package XML in the package creator. A WIKI that describes all the Package Actions included in this project can be found here http://our.umbraco.org/wiki/reference/packaging/package-actions/community-made-package-actions.
