Paulo Roberto Massa Cereda sub­mit­ted the arara pack­age to CTAN. Sum­mary de­scrip­tion: arara is a TeX au­toma­tion tool based on rules and di­rec­tives. Li­cense type: bsd An­nounce­ment text:
arara is a TeX au­toma­tion tool based on rules and di­rec­tives. It is, in some as­pects, sim­i­lar to other well-known tools like La­texmk and rub­ber. The key dif­fer­ence might be the fact that arara aims at ex­ploit­ing meta­data in the source code, that is, ex­plicit in­struc­tions in the source code in or­der to de­ter­mine what to do in­stead of re­ly­ing on other re­sources, such as log file anal­y­sis.
This pack­age is lo­cated at http://mir­ror.ctan.org/sup­port/arara . More in­for­ma­tion is at http://www.ctan.org/pkg/arara (if the pack­age is new it may take a day for that in­for­ma­tion to ap­pear). We are sup­ported by the TeX Users Group http://www.tug.org . Please join a users group; see http://www.tug.org/user­groups.html .
Thanks for the up­load. For the CTAN Team Rainer Schöpf

arara – Au­toma­tion of com­pi­la­tion

Arara is com­pa­ra­ble with other well-known com­pi­la­tion tools like la­texmk and rub­ber. The key dif­fer­ence is that arara de­ter­mines its ac­tions from meta­data in the source code, rather than re­ly­ing on in­di­rect re­sources, such as log file anal­y­sis.

Arara re­quires a Java vir­tual ma­chine.
