Description : OCaml libraries for managing packages and their dependencies
Dose 2 is a framework made of several of OCaml libraries for managing
distribution packages and their dependencies.
Though not tied to any particular distribution, Dose 2 forms a
background of libraries which enable injecting packages coming for
various distribution. Companion libraries (e.g. ceve) and tools (e.g.
pkglab) rely on Dose 2 to manage packages coming from various
distributions, e.g. Debian and Red Hat.
Besides basic functionalities for querying and setting package
properties, Dose 2 also implements algorithms for solving more complex
problems (monitoring package evolutions, correct and complete
dependency resolution, repository-wide uninstallability checks).
dose2 is the first of a chain of 3/4 package that would lead to the
packaging of pkglab, an interactive shell to "play" with package
dependencies. pkglab is a tool which has already been proved very useful
for archive wide QA and testing.
dose2 is being packaged on the git repository
