PackageKit Google Summer of Code Ideas

PackageKit Google Summer of Code Ideas:
  • urpmi backend for Mandriva
  • portage backend for Gentoo
  • ports backend for FreeBSD
  • Rewrite opyum or APTonCD to support libpackagekit and be distribution neutral
  • Design a KDE front-end suitable for upstream inclusion
  • Profiling for memory and speed with a security review of the packagekitd daemon
  • Design of an end-to-end test harness for .rpm and .deb on temporary
    repositories for complete self check
