Project launch: openSUSE Software Portal / Application Manager

Filed under
SUSE

Today we had our first/kick-off IRC meeting about the "openSUSE Software Portal / Application Manager" project.

Read a description about the project and its goals here: Software_Portal
The transcript of the IRC meeting is available here: Software_Portal/Meetings/2007_05_12/transcript

The interesting bits are that we're going to have a shot at a brilliant solution for managing application/package installation/update (both from a technical point of view and in terms of ease of use), and that the initiative and the resources come from the community (currently, Justin, Benjamin and I, with sPiN joining for web design and Francis later on).
