Project packages.acl.org.ua

Post by lystor » 2010/06/01 07:40:02

Hi, friends!

Let me introduce a project for finding and downloading Linux software and packages.

The project provides next features:
* Large, daily updated database with RPM and DEB packages for well-known repositories of the Fedora, CentOS, RHEL, Debian, Ubuntu and OpenSuse distributions.
* Packages browser by distribution, repository, packages group with the filtering support.
* Detailed packages information (name, version, description, architecture, files, requires, etc.).
* Detailed packages statistics by project, distribution, repository and packages group.
* HTTP/FTP/RSYNC mirrors lists for the packages downloading.
* Packages search by name, summary, description, requires, provides, files and directories.
* URL shortcuts for the direct packages search.
* Multilanguage interface.
* Effective site navigation.
* XHTML/CSS markup.

The project is still under the development.
All bugs, suggestions and comments please write to the [url=http://forum.acl.org.ua/]forum[/url].

As this is the [i]Social[/i] thread, I would like to mention that [b]Nikolay[/b] -- a.k.a. [i][b]lystor[/b][/i] in the [i]CentOS[/i] fora -- is a contributor to, and package maintainer, for the [i]ELRepo Project[/i].

Hence, in view of that latter fact, I think you should be able to regard the packages available from [url=http://packages.acl.org.ua/]http://packages.acl.org.ua/[/url] with a degree of confidence. However, that being said we ( the [i]ELRepo Project[/i] ) cannot, of course, vouch for those packages. ;-)

Thanks Alan for introducing Nikolay. To tell you the truth, I was hesitant to checkout the repo because I do not know the credibility of the maintainer. Now that I know that Nikolay is credible, I might use his repo on my test machines when the need arises.

With regards to rpm packages, if I cannot trust the packager I usually try to build my own rpm packages and bracing my self on the pain of configuring the spec file.

Thanks Nikolay for the making your repo available to the public!

Edit: I have browsed the site and I thought it was another repo but it was a place where all repos can be found. Even though this is not a new repo, I may say that this is great since this is another tool for easy search of not only rpm but also deb packages!
