Default Void Linux: eqemu_install.sh

I decided to try and write a script for Void Linux to understand the EQEmu install process. I'm basing everything off the existing scripts and making changes that work for Void LInux as I go.

I've never done anything like this, so I want to make sure that I don't step on any toes and give credit where credit is due.

First, I created a project on github:


I've never used github, other than to clone to my local computer. So, is there a way to put a link to the original script and give credit to the author(s)?

Second, if anybody sees anything wrong with my logic/code/script, I would definitely appreciate the feedback.

My goal is to make a package for Void Linux where anybody can install it through a xbps-src rather than build it manually, like I'm currently doing.

I may be the only person in the world who wants an EQEmu server on Void Linux, but it's been fun, so far, trying to get this to work.

After the install script is done, I will focus on the eqemu perl script. That might be interesting, as I'm not efficient at perl; it's a great learning opportunity!

After hearing Microsoft is acquiring Github, decided to close this and move it elsewhere. Not sure where, yet, but I'm thinking of going to Gitlab; also, thinking of doing something a little bit more with it for the fun & experience.
