I suggested Debian repo, but it can be any repo... just a place to store the mods. It could just be nexusmods that is the backend for storage. Doesn't really matter too much.skullgrid wrote:If we can use, say, Pacman and Aptitude for OpenMW mods but not Yum then some users are left in the dark. Also, I'm not sure if any of them offer all of the features necessary. In most cases those package managers resolve conflicts by detecting them and asking the user to make a choice. This is not suitable in our case.
As for using pacman or dpkg or yum... I know that dpkg can co-exist with other package managers just fine, so no one is left out of the dark there. However, I don't think a full-fledged package manager is even necessary nor wanted, but a stripped down one that resembles one where the back-end (storage) is pluggable (nexumsmods, yum, dpkg... etc). I'm sure there would be some overlap and that would a technological hurdle to get over.
Anyway... I say, keep it simple stupid (KISS) and for now, just use nexusmods to get something up and running and start adding features.
