When we first discussed SWI (years ago) the concept of an "app store" was already there, long before Apple put it in on the Macintosh.
We have an intermediate problem which would be an installer and/or a way of building packages from source.
One of the never implemented apps of GAP is an installer. The two things should work together.
Since our "Browser" is called "Vespucci", we could find a name going in aFondaco.app (the Ventian trade houses... the german had one too :)
Fugger.app is nice :)
Maybe a small pet project.
Since I think we will never have a single "application project", we need some sortYes, that is a problem. This is where SWI can be an umbrella over different projects.
Etoile or GAP can't be "the app store" as some suggests, since the way they guarantee the quality of the software is by maintaining it. I can't speak for Etoile, but GAP doesn't incorporate "all apps" unmaintained out there for different reasons. If they don't fit its paradigm is the official answer. But there is also the burden of actually maintaining it. GAP goes beyond a mere testing.
