General Project OverviewIntroductionAbsolutely Useless Package Manager (AUPM) is (maybe) a funny name of the new project to create own package manager for easy installation of applications on Unix-based and Linux operating systems.
Basic Developer InfoProgrammed in C (parts could be in C++), and (probably) POSIX standart, it is fully portable to any POSIX-based OS. Project is developed under General Public License version 3 (GPLv3).
Project IdeasThis is the way to create very good and fast package manager, which will combine advantages of Slackware packages (TGZ, very fast) and Debian, Red Hat packages (DEB, RPM, good info about package inside it, autodownload of dependencies) in one simple manager. It is projected to be as good as possible.
