Package Manager of your dreams
I need input. I'm writing one
SQLite database, python code
multiarch supprt inside the very package manager
packages have "variants" alongside names, eg kde or nokde versions of some package. à la USE-flagged compiles in portage
global system options, for example with-webmin, all-headers, french. cjk.... for "conditional dependencies"
manual dependency skipping, fake (db-only) installs
primararly binary packages
easy building from and tweaking of source packages. everything is built from source packages. (but can be wrapped without as well). packages use tar, bz2 and xml.
that's all I can think of right now.
For those who are interested in development (please) or helping the project later on: This is planned to evolve into a new distribution. It all started at linuxgangster.org , and that is where the development is centered. At the moment, information and substantial material (code) is scarce (but code exists) so you shouldn't need too long to get into the matter if you really were interested, which you are probably not.
If you are wondering why I am asking here: This place seems to be a place with diverse distribution users that may have seen and loved package manager features which the more debian/slackware/gentoo centric linuxgangster community may have overlooked.
