Linux Installing software on Linux has gotten progressively easier over the years, down to being downright foolproof in Ubuntu's Application Center. However, there is still the problem of each distribution relying on its own frontends and backends, and this needs to be addressed. Members from all the major Linux distributions have held several talks, and have come up with a solution which is already being implemented.

Sounds like the OpenSuse buildservice.

But I guess they want to make it easier to package stuff.

Which is something everyone should be happy about, right ?

If I understand correctly, the point is to build a common interface and API for users to obtain software, independently of the distro package format or building service. Is not about building software but how to deliver it.
