The X Binary Package System (in short XBPS) is a binary package system designed and implemented from scratch. Its goal is to be fast, easy to use, bug-free, featureful, and portable as much as possible. There is a well documented API provided by the XBPS Library that is the basis for its frontends, to handle binary packages and repositories.
Upmf is a source-based package manager written almost completely in Scheme. The user is able to search, build, and remove packages. Since Scheme through GUILE is very extensible, the user can customize the procedures, or even exchange them with his own, if wanted. Packages are stored in their own self-contained directories and are incorporated into the filesystem with help of GNU Stow.
yumpkgs is a tool to help people download the right set of RPM packages needed to update another computer that can't download the packages itself, for whatever reason. After the packages have been downloaded, they can be transferred to the other computer by way of a flash drive or portable disc. yumpkgs produces a list (downloads.list) with a .bat script that can be run on Windows to do the downloading.
