The Desktop Architects had their fourth meeting
(cleverly acronym'd to DAM-4) as part of the Linux
Foundation Collaboration Summit last week.
I thought the snip might be interesting (I did not attend
this session as I had other commitments):
- The LF DAM-4 packaging workgroup included representatives from
the distributions, ISVs, enterprise IT, individual users and
open source software application owners/maintainers. The
discussion started to identify the viewpoints of the stakeholders
and what is required to improve Linux application packaging for
all communities. Particular focus on the user experience, how to
manage trusted repositories, package standardization, integration
and testing. The communities will continue to refine these
packaging requirements on the LSB packaging mailing list.
