Hi Oliver,

how does the th pkg-tree mount point exactly look like? Does every package has its own directory or do multiple packages could share a directory. E.g. the libs directory is populated by multiple packages. In this case what happens when there is a file conflict? For example two packages want to install the lib libexample.so in libs.
