Brand new packaging system for project Indiana
By simford on Sep 13, 2007
In the meeting of ERI Stars with Jeff Jackson (Solaris VP && ERI Site Sponsor), Jeff mentioned that project Indiana will use a brand new packaging system, other than SVR4, dpkg (.deb) and RPM (.rpm). The details for this new packaging system is not available yet, but we can safely expect some features it will have.
- It's brand new packaging system, similar to dpkg and RPM
- There's not patch any more (like in SVR4)
updates are in pkg format
- More similar to .rpm than .deb
PS. Stevepn Hahn is working on it.
