I think that an update system for Haiku should only update system files/official Haiku stuff. 3rd party things should be left well alone. I want to put things I install where I want to put them, not where some package manager thinks is the best place for them. A clean separation between church and state^H^H^H^H^H^H^H Haiku system files and 3rd party apps is how I would like my Haiku installs. :) See WIndows Update and OSX System Update (in concept rather than implementation) for instance. Kind regards, Nik
The idea for Haiku's package manager is to allow you to put software anywhere, and still warn you when updates are available. All done with some attribute magic of course. And a community-driven "repository" giving only version and dependancy info, but letting the software editor store its packages anywhere.
As for R1 : BeOS compatibility should be the only goal. Locale Kit and Package Manager are then out of scope.
