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."

Ironic that things that keep Haiku from Release 1 are 'cruft' left over from its BeOS legacy.

You seem to have misunderstood what I wrote (if you were basing your comment on mine), I stated that 'package management' is a R1 showstopper.

Package management has nothing to do with Beos R5 'cruft', however by reaching R1 (which is prevented by the lack of functional package management), Haiku can start moving towards R2 and with it start leaving Beos R5 and all it's baggage behind.

And with baggage I mean things like GCC 2.95 binary compability and really bad core stuff like B_MAX_CPU_COUNT/system_info.
