Re: [GsoC] Add pkgsrc support to packagekit

For those who would not know PackageKit, it is an abstract layer for package 
manager. Its goal is to unify all package manager (GUI or CLI).
It uses "backends" for communicate with the package manager. The backend matchs 
PackageKit commands and package manager functions.

PackageKit <-> backend <-> pkgin/apt-get/yum

The backend can be writed with the language you want.

PackageKit can be used in console or with a Gtk GUI.
