Thanks for this, this wasn't on my radar before.

I did some thinking about this, and it ties in with what Martin said
before, download types (including versions) are identified by type using
a string, such as:

<stuff category="app/media"> (the given example)


if we use the same system, but prefix each string using a checksum of
the enitre package such as:


gimp/package/3.4.8/package.xml, could just be a ghnsdownload identifying
everything that is to be installed an un-installed.
And the checksum prefix identifies that it was installed as a part of a
given package

and given a network based install, you just send the package.xml, where
the package could be constructed on the fly.

Any technical comments on this solution?

How would the installed version look?
