so we’ve invest a lot in our packages distribution over the past couple months

Erik Osterman

part of this was extending/refactoring the make based installer so we can support multiple packaging schemes

Erik Osterman

just to be clear, the make based installer for packages is not going away

Erik Osterman

we rely on that extensively both in our build-harness and for customer local development environments

Erik Osterman

the apk based packages are designed to provide an enhanced way for manging packages. the problem with the “make approach” is expressing package dependencies. in the end, we found ourself re-inventing the wheel, which is why we add support for a package manager.

Erik Osterman

in the future, we might add .deb or .rpm (@ would dig this maybe?)

also, in the latest release, we’ve eliminated the duplication between /install and /vendor (which was part of the migration process for us to carry out this project)
