Subject Re: [CODE]: 118605 remove epm?
Date Tue, 22 Nov 2011 12:24:00 GMT
Hi Juergen;

I dont have an easy solution for you but perhaps
you should try OpenPKG, as it produces RPM
and has a better license:
     http://www.openpkg.net/

And dont worry about FreeBSD as none of those
packagers work with the new pkgng format.

Cheers,

Pedro.
