I know you may not agree, but I think an updating system and a packagemanagement system is needed for R1. At least some initial basic version of both, it doesn't have to be the perfect thing we all seem to want out of the gate. I also don't consider some of the Tracker refactoring as features but as bugs that should also be resolved before release.I agree with that, and I would like to suggest a system like the one available for Ubuntu.
Ubuntu uses Debian's apt-get system. Technically, adapting it should not be impossible, and once it is up and running on the command-line, people can write graphical front-ends for it. Politically, things are trickier. Apt-get is bound by the GPL. IANAL but it does look like distributing it under Haiku's more liberal license might be problematic.
