Debian Thunderbird 1.0.2 (X11/20051002)
I expanded the Ocean toolset with one more tool called 'controller'
Although it is called version 0.9 it actually is a proof of concept and
I am looking for feedback.
What is controller
controller is a command line tool to maintain een installed GNUstep
system. With controller you start and stop applications and daemons and
you can remove installed software pieces so your entire system is clean
How useful is it
Not much since it depends on the supplier of the software. controller
expands the GNUstep Library directory with one more entry called
InstalleDB per domain (System, User, Local, Network). It expects a
<Software-package>.db file which should contain a description of the
installed software. An example is present here:
How do I test controller
Install GWorkspace from CVS, create Library/InstalleDB, copy the
GWorkspace.db file into that directory and create a symlink called
GWorkspace to controller.
For testing purposes a variable called DEBUG is currently set to
DEBUG=echo (since controller might be destructive). With this you can
see what might be done. If you set DEBUG to DEBUG=. Then the actions are
controller --help gives you an explanation of its syntax
What is the status
It can start/stop applications and daemons
It can remove Libraries, Headers, Bundles, Frameworks, Usersettings,
Applications, Tools, Daemons, or everything.
It can do all of the above per GNUstep domain if you whish.
It is still missing the Documentation part.
Where can I get it?

After all, survival is not mandatory."
