I would like to hear about the chances and interests of implementing user-
installable (and maintainable) packages. Under /home/username, without the 
need for root. Something similar or better than the "Zero Install" system. As 
an option not as the default ;-)

About something like (or better than) the GoboLinux' alternative filesystem 
hierarchy for inside /usr/pkg  (which is designed to make most package 
management tools superfluous). A comparison of this (or other concepts) with 
pkgviews  would also be very interesting.

Maintainability and usability improvements in pkgsrc and package management 
since 2008.

best, Mark
