Package: OPS! the OPS Package System
System name: ops
Type: non-GNU

OPS! stands for OPS Package System, and is the new method of packing binary 
software and source code I'm working on. It will provide some basic functions 
(like installing and removing packages or quering the database) that can be 
modified by the one who creates the packet. It is distro-indipendent, as .ops 
files doesn't need nothing but OPS! to be installed. It will probably become 
the offcial packet manager for the NHG distro (see 
for detalils) when it will be ready. I have no source code for now, I'm working 
from the bottom on the first c function: nothing really working, but I think 
I'm following the right way. There are other two people that will probably help 
me developing this tool as a bunch of c applications with a common interface. 
The result will be similar to Debian's apt. The scope of the OPS! is to give to 
the user and to the one who creates the packet a lot freedom: a .ops package 
can contain scripts to automate the installation as well as long configuration 
scripts. The user decides. (Sorry for my English, I'm just an Italian student!)

Other Software Required:
Since .ops files are .tar.bz2 files renamed, I need both tar and bzip2 
installed to handle packets. Installation scripts will be programmed in bash, 
so I will need bash: but who creates the packet can decide to use perl or other 
languages instead.
