Sounds a bit iffy. I mean what happens when there is an application you want to install that isn't in a compartmentalised package and it requires you to upgrade a certain library that breaks the whole package system?
I haven't read all the details on the website so my answer might be in there, I'll read it all tomorrow.
Anyway, isn't this just a slight extension on Slackware packages? I mean Slack has always compartmentalised packages. Like KDE for instance, one package instead of a dozen kdenetwork, Kdeartwork, kdemultimedia etc. etc.
But, yeah, I for one would like to see an article on this subject.
The question is, what is a mahnamahna?
The question is, who cares?
