cupt, the APT competitor
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
The short story
This mail is to inform that Debian APT suite now has a competitor named Cupt .
The long story
Some time ago (winter 2008), after working some time on APT suite, I started
to develop Cupt to substitute APT for myself in areas where APT fails due to
design or implementation problems.
I just uploaded cupt 1.0.0~beta1 to unstable claiming that most of obvious
(and not so obvious) bugs has been ironed out (thanks to people who helped me
to do that). I will, of course, appreciate excessive testing.
Indeed, I am aware and understand that considering a big number of apt reverse
dependencies and some missing features Cupt cannot serve as a drop-in APT
replacement, far from it. Nevertheless, I hope it can be useful even at the
current stage. The list of prominent features and limitations is present on .
