GetAvailable.conf is the file where you can configure paths and URLs used to locate binary packages.
It is stored at /Programs/Scripts/Settings/Scripts/GetAvailable.conf -- which, once installed, has a link at /System/Settings/Scripts/GetAvailable.conf (if you're used to the GoboLinux tree, you should know by now that this is the same as /etc/Scripts/GetAvailable.conf).
These are the usual contents of the file:
The timeout (in seconds) when trying to fetch the packages list from a sever.
The paths from which local packages will be automatically be found. Notice that both compressed (e.g. /Depot/Packages/Qt--4.0.0--i686.tar.bz2) and uncompressed (e.g. /Mount/SquashFS/Programs/Qt/4.0.0) packages can be matched.
defaultLocalPackagesPaths=( "/Depot/Packages" "/Mount/SquashFS/Programs" "/Mount/CD-ROM/Depot/Packages/" "." )
The URLS from which lists of official binary packages (packed by some core developer) will be retrieved.
officialPackagesLists=( 'http://kundor.org/gobo/packages/official/MANIFEST.bz2' 'http://gobo.calica.com/packages/official/MANIFEST.bz2' )
The URLS from which lists of contributed binary packages (contributed by some user, and placed, without garanties, at our servers) will be retrieved.
contribPackagesLists=( 'http://kundor.org/gobo/packages/contrib/MANIFEST.bz2' 'http://gobo.calica.com/packages/contrib/MANIFEST.bz2' )
The URLS from which lists of tracked versions will be retrieved. A tracked version is a program version that actually may not have a correspondent Recipe or binary package, but that is already made available by the program developers
