It's a package manager, not tied to a specific respository. It can
handle many incoming sources, including a git tree, a hosted tarball,
MELPA packages or even emacs-wiki.

It is very similar to Homebrew for example. It provides some kind of DSL
to describe a "recipe". It's very concise. I am a happy user. There is a
dependency management but there is no versioning at all. You update the
cookbook from time to time and decide to update all packages or only
some of them. You'll get the version described in the recipe which is
often just a git checkout.
