Conary is a distributed software management system for Linux distributions. It replaces traditional package management solutions (such as RPM and dpkg) with one designed to enable loose collaboration across the Internet. It enables sets of distributed and loosely connected repositories to define the components which are installed on a Linux system. Rather than having a full distribution come from a single vendor, it allows administrators and developers to branch a distribution, keeping the pieces which fit their environment while grabbing components from other repositories across the Internet.
dput-webdav is a "dput" upload method plugin with extended WebDAV support. It was written specifically with Artifactory and Bintray in mind. It tries to be compatible with the "http" plugin, but offers additional features: login credentials can include the password, "incoming" can be a full URL (optionally containing dynamic package metadata, and supporting HTTPS), and distributions can be mapped to repository names.
Foresight Linux is a desktop operating system featuring an intuitive user interface and a showcase of the latest desktop software, giving users convenient and enjoyable access to their music, photos, videos, documents, and Internet resources. As a Linux distribution, Foresight sets itself apart by eliminating the need for the user to be familiar with Linux, combining a user-focused desktop environment on top of Conary. As the most technically innovative software management system available today, Conary ensures that users can efficiently search, install, and manage all the software on the Foresight system, including bringing in the latest features and fixes without waiting for a major release.
Admin-packages is a package manager for sources. Among other things, it handles multiple local and remote repositories, user defined tmacro transformations, recursive dependency resolution, installation logging and package removal, creation and installation of binary packages, and the ability to create new distributions from scratch.
ivepkg is a package manager with a focus on homebuilt distributions like Linux From Scratch. Therefore, ivepkg has no repository or network abilities, but is specialized on installing tarballs to a system. Its key features are an easy-to-use database (sqlite3) and a sha1 checksum of every installed file. These make it possible to know which files have been altered (for example, by a malicious attack).
The psys library provides a simple interface to the system package manager of a Linux system. It allows installation programs to notify the package manager of the installation, uninstallation, and update of third-party software packages, and to request these packages to be added to or removed from the system package database. The psys library interface is generic and not tied to a specific package management system or Linux distribution; it is meant to be a proposal for a future version of the LSB standard.
