I don't like the idea of having twice the same apps only in diffent trees. you can just ignore the install from source option. But if you realy want, we can add a "disable install from src" option.
I prefer optimize the apps to my system compiling it, but i know lot of people that get scared when he see a install from the sources and a binary install, they don't know what to choice, so it could be interesting a basic interface that hides the sources and an avanced interface, with the sources and other power options, so a neofit can use it like windows, without knowing what they are doing when install a program.....

IMO, any proposal _MUST_ be written in C

VB is too much of a resource hog to be a viable option.
Plus, if the end product does prove useful (like apt-get) then it could be included in into the OS source.

Sounds like you used the wrong one.

We are talking about a script lang not about the program. If everyone who wants to create a package needed to know C, we would run in trouble.

I think we don't need to create that many files. If we just create 2 non packed ones it will be easier to maintain. I know that (almost ?) no Linux packgemanger goes that way but that is because they have the data files include into the package file.

Good link !

But we have to test them all and check if they run under ROS.
