Hi, The week before last I had some discussions with Pascal about how Equinox provisioning stuff will interact with Linux distribution packages. Since then I've been struggling a bit to get my thoughts and our discussions collected so I'd like to discuss them here to get others' opinions.
One of the ideas we discussed was profile inheritance. With that, we would have a system-wide (administrator-managed) profile that is populated with the entire set of bundles available via installed distro packages (RPMs, .debs, whatever). (I am thinking we'd have to manually avoid conflicts in what we ship, but that's tangential here.) We would also have per-user profiles that allow for system-wide things to be disabled/enabled and allows for per-user bundle installation. Does this make sense? Thanks, Andrew
