Package Managers: What Now, What Next?
Community evaluation and ideation session to recap the current (as of late June) state of the IPFS-enabled package manager landscape, discuss happiness and pain points, and do some ideation/co-creation around the direction of our next rounds of package manager efforts.
We'll use what we learn during this session to help refine (or re-define, if necessary) our roadmap for package manager efforts over the second half of 2019.
Requirements to consider
No specific requirements, since this is a discussion-based ideation session, but you'll get the most out of this session if you read about some of our foundational work on package managers so far in the IPFS Package Managers Working Group repo.
