mrchocky:"Look at Debian users" Um, no. Since when does RISC OS=Debian? It's easy for programmers who are familiar with package management to see its power and usefulness. But just because it's right for Debian doesn't mean it's right for RISC OS.

Personally, I like the sound of RiscPkg as a centralised resource for downloads/updates but am not convinced (like JGZimmerle) of the need for an installation solution beyond !System+!MyApp.

Of course no one's going to be forced to make use of it - so it's no biggy :-)
