==== Description: ====
Upmf is a package manager, uniting the good things of two other source based
package managers, Gentoo's Portage and Paldo's Upkg, and adding some own

  * Package specification files: Upmf uses an advanced XML format, derived
from Upkg's XML format.  Upmf strives to keep compatibility with Upkg's
package files, thus giving access to Paldo's growing repository.
  * USE flags: The user can customize the features of a package.  If a USE
flag is enabled, the feature will be built, otherwise not.
  * Build types: Provide predefined ways to build a package.  This avoids
massive duplication of the same lines (./configure && ...) like in Upkg's
package files.
  * Sections: Give packages a namespace.  This is much like the first part in
Gentoo package names, e.g. dev-lang in dev-lang/vala.
  * Installation of a package: Upmf uses GNU Stow for installation of
packages.  In contrast, Portage installs a package to a special install
directory, creates an archive from that and then extracts that archive in the
root file system.  Upmf + Stow should be faster here, especially on big-sized

Upmf is written in C and makes use of Gnulib.  XML is used in configuration

==== Other Software Required: ====
libxml2, Expat,
GNU Stow, GPL,

==== Tarball URL: ====
