FEatures (Re: Naming (Re: Unified packages. )



Now it is time to start talking features.  We want to gather the best
features, like Hubert said.

 From OpenBSD:
  <Please list here>
 From FreeBSD: 
  <please list here>
 From NetBSD:
  * Full support for wildcards in both "src" as well as binary pkgs
  * Some support for bulk building all packages, to ensure pkgs
    work (see ftp://smaug.fh-regensburg.de/pub/NetBSD/pkgstat/20000819.1320/broken.html
    for an example)
  * Support for Solaris (it *is* being used!)
 
 Other features from NetBSD that might be interresting:
  * A package database to findout which pkg a file belongs to
  * Installed and binary pkgs contain the size of the pkg
    in bytes. Also, the size including all required pkgs is available.
  * Pkgs can be deleted recursively, e.g. to nuke jpeg and everything
    that needs it (very handy)
  * Detection of out-of-date pkg_* tools if bsd.pkg.mk uses a feature
    that the installed pkg_* tools don't provide.
