  • Could Docker replace package management?

    Conventional wisdom holds that containers are fast on their way to remaking everything from application deployment to the design of ultralean Linux distributions. That last part raises a question, though: Could container technologies like Docker be used to solve Linux's long-standing conundrums with package management? Might containers provide a path away from dependency hell and competing (and incompatible) package standards?

    In the yes camp: The folks at CoreOS, creators of the Linux distribution that revolves entirely around containers, not packages, as its basic unit of modularity.

  • Limba Project: Another progress report

    The Limba package format should be stable by now – since Limba is still Alpha software, I will however, make breaking changes in case there is a huge flaw which makes it reasonable to break the IPK package format. I don’t think that this will happen though, as the Limba packages are designed to be easily backward- and forward compatible.
