Subject: Support a package repository

from Owl 4 todo:

Support a package repository, possibly with Zypper, yum, or APT-RPM
(package one of these - and its prerequisites).

fenrus - they have a pretty interesting solution


Software update

One of the things where we are not very happy with the status-quo in
Linux is around software update. Sure, yum, apt-get and co work, but
they're slow and they end up downloading so much data, that it is very
unpractical for distros and users to do frequent updates to fix small
bugs. After all, who wants to redownload all of LibreOffice just to
get one sentence corrected in the French translation. We feel that the
lack of an efficient software update is holding Linux OSes back in
getting to a higher quality, to listen to their users more.

We presented about the basics of the software update technology that
we use in Fenrus Linux at the Linux Plumbers conference in 2012.;a=summary;a=summary
