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). > > When this list is more complete we can choose the best features > > and try to adapt the other features in a interface like manner. > > I am not sure what you mean.

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 distributions. 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. gr Dick _______________________________________________ vcs-pkg-discuss mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org http://lists.alioth.debian.org/mailman/listinfo/vcs-pkg-discuss
