• Haiku repository files and identifiers

    From OSnews@21:1/5 to All on Sun Jul 12 21:24:38 2020
    Software on a computing platform such as Haiku is typically distributed as a package. Without a packaging system it would be hard for users to install software and because software often depends on other software, the chain of dependencies would be
    difficult for a user to resolve themselves. To orchestrate the distribution and management of the packages, Haiku has a packaging system which consists of applications, online tools, on-host tools and software libraries. One aspect of the packaging
    system is the coordination and identification of repositories.

    An overview of the inner workings of package management on Haiku.
