Re: SEUL: TurboLinux

> Are you suggesting that seul should have its own packaging system?

Not in the sense that I think you mean.  We should stick with dpkg or RPM 
because they already do almost everything we need.  We just need to make full 
use of what features they do provide, which IMO RedHat hasn't done.  Dunno 
about Debian, I'm going to try to install that today if my green-gold disk 
works... :)

We will, however have to make sure that the front end that handles the 
installations can actually *use* these dependencies appropriately to install 
them, in whatever fashion appropriate.  (I'll get around to the rest of this 
thread in a couple hours... :)

> I don't understand what you mean by that.

By re-roll I mean `rpm --rebuild` with new spec files.  Add in the proper 
dependency information and simply rebuild them.  However, I think there will 
be few enough packages we won't already be modifying to some extent or 
another that we won't be doing very many simple re-rolls.
