| Everybody likes lists, so here's one:
| ~ * opkg is maintained, ipkg isn't
| ~ * opkg has 2 companies behind it
| ~ * future PackageKit integration
| ~ * 'open' sounds cooler than 'itsy' ;)
| ~ * GPG signed packages and feeds
| What do you think?
Given the positive feedback, here's a plan of attack:
* upload opkg to the 2008 feeds for people to test
* start implementing DISTRO_PACKAGE_MANAGER for angstrom
* include both opkg and ipkg in images (DISTRO_PACKAGE_MANAGER="opkg
ipkg") for a period of time
* stop including ipkg
And once the PackageKit stuff works well enough we can consider it for
backporting to 2007, but we'll cross that bridge when we get there.
koen at dominion.kabel.utwente.nl will go go away in december 2007, please
use k.kooi at student.utwente.nl instead.
