Re: Packaging and installation

A long long time ago, when LSB was starting up,
I wrote a proposal to use RDF metadata in a package management system: the idea
was to let binary and source and other installations all co-exist, without
affecting multiple databases. Basically there would be an API which installers
would use, and which would have to be implemented by pakage managers..
Its at

There wasnt much interest then, so I dropped the whole idea..but since the topic
came up again, I thought I'd bring it up again, incase there is anything useful
(which I still think there is..)
