General Development 14 months ago, the Autopackage project was small and active, and members sounded optimistic about its success. Now, although the alternative installer project continues, progress has almost come to a halt. The #autopackage channel on irc.oftc.net sits vacant most days, the developer blogs cover almost anything except the project, and commits to the source code repository have become rare. Formally, the project is still alive, but the major contributors all agree that it is faltering. So what happened?

I never found any use for Autopackage, but their <a href="http://autopackage.org/docs/binreloc/">BinReloc library is quite useful if you are writing cross-platform software in C/C++.

imho their biggest accomplishment isn't autopackage itself, but the fact they solved many problems like binary relocation.
