That would be great, please fill in every system you know that is
supported/in use for Debian (in the same table cell per feature).

Well I'll try :-)

If we would choose 'conary repository' as meta data storage it should be
possible to make a adapter from spec/ebuild to a recipe to store the
meta data. The same goes for distribution to users, the sources can be
distributed to users by using yum.

In my opinion we should choose a standard, keep supporting the "legacy"
features and slowly migrate to only using the standard features.

And in the beginning only by shadowing every^H^H^H^H^Hmost Linux

I'm convinced the features can be more or less replaced/adapted by each
other. One can make a debian control file which uses a rpm spec file as
input for example.

Please let me know what I should explain futher and any other feedback.
