Re: RFC: implementation of package pools

You gravely misunderstand what this is about: this is the technology
to manage the archive, not do things like testing. That should be
a layer on top of this.

You don't need the symlink farm since the path to the package is
inside the Packages file.

You're even more arrogant. They know perfectly well what the good
and bad things are about ext2.

Hahaha! Trust me, i've been in a CS dept for 7 years now and I've seen
people get their msc without knowing anything about satisfiability
problems.  And no, that's not just true for this university,
unfortunately that happens everywhere. (no need to try and convince me
your university is different)

Probably because bison uses good algorithms.
