I'm not quite sure where the publisher fits in the process. We already have the author(s) in the copyright attributes, the person who created the package as the packager, and the repository owner as the vendor. What does the publisher do exactly?
It is something that featured in the C++ in-memory model for the Haiku Depot desktop application when I looked a month or so back. My assumption would be that if we have a publisher like "My Company" (nz.co.mycompany) then it would be possible to easily reference all packages from that company. Maybe Stephan can fill us in on the origin of this entity?
