Meeting: Graham Shaw and RiscPkg

March 2005

Graham Shaw, the developer behind the RISC OS package manager RiscPkg, came to talk to us about the software and about the aims of the RISC OS Packaging Project more generally. RiscPkg is being developed with the goal of simplifying the task of obtaining and installing new software – along with all the extra bits that each new title seems to require. The system is modelled on tools available for Linux, and the hope is that it will eventually support a wide range of software on our platform.
