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.
