sol

Replacement for eopkg, the Solus package manager (a fork of eopkg).

This is not an effort to create "yet another package manager", it is instead a current research effort for the successor to eopkg, to create a modern package manager to deal with the needs of today, and of Solus itself.

  • Spend less time downloading
  • Spend less time applying updates
  • Don't ever break. (ABI, layout, config, etc.)

The Solus mantra is "Install today, update forever". We need a modern software and update management system to handle this in the most efficient manner for the user, to truly handle the needs of a modern rolling release designed for the ordinary user.

More details will be fleshed out as and when we've settled on them. In the mean time, don't panic. :]

sol is a Solus project
