My Repository for Paldo-Linux

Finaly I become a maintainer and have now my own repository started. You can find it here.
Soon or later my builds will find their way to the main repository of Paldo-Linux.
I'm in contact with the leaders of the Paldo-Linux-Project.

All next builds of my programs will be released for Paldo-Linux. You can always build the programs out of source for other distros.

Hope some of you will join the Paldo-Linux-Project. We are using Upkg which is a package management and build system using Mono. It builds, installs and keeps track of packages using XML specifications in Upkg repositories.

Paldo stands for "pure adaptable linux distribution" and we try to accomplish this in every package. paldo comes with very few patches against its packages. We have virtually no local changes, means every patch is one which will go upstream anyway (e.g. compile fixes) or one needed by the LFS build system to enable us to boostrap correctly. It's very easy to make changes to the distro. You can change every package by providing a local version of the sources and specifications you've changed. You can even configure your system automatically through local differencial repositories. The whole distribution is very flexible because it's built on top of Upkg

paldo wants to be a distribution according to the "just-works" principle. It tries to configure automatically as much as possible without user intervention. paldo is task-oriented, means, that we won't provide several programs to do one and the same task, we will select the program which we think does this task best, and include it into paldo. paldo aims to support cutting-edge technologies. It is pure NPTL based (no linuxthreads support) and therefore does not work with a Linux kernel older than 2.6.x.
