BeOS & Derivatives "Last Friday Oliver and I met up to discuss the state of things and how we intend to proceed. The run-time support for package management in Haiku (in the package management branch, of course) is in pretty good shape already. With the system itself and all the third-party software living in packages the system boots and is fully functional."

I think they've picked a really nice way to do package management. You can install an application or just run it from anywhere, use a repository or download a package yourself from any site, it has dependency resolution, and different versions of the same package can be installed at once.

I plan on writing more software for Haiku when package management is done. ;)
