Cross-platform packaging facility OpenPKG 1.3 released

Ralf S. Engelschall writes "The OpenPKG project released
version 1.3
of their unique RPM-based cross-platform Unix software
packaging facility. Well known by vigilant Unix system administrators,
OpenPKG is the world leading instrument for deployment and maintenance
of Open Source software when administration crosses Unix platform

OpenPKG 1.3 provides 400 selected packages which include
proven versions of popular Unix software like Apache, BIND, GCC, GnuPG,
MySQL, OpenSSH, Perl, Postfix, Samba and teTeX -- all carefully packaged
for easy deployment on the officially supported Unix platforms FreeBSD
4.8 and 5.1, Debian GNU/Linux 2.2 and 3.0, Red Hat Linux 9, SuSE Linux
8.2, and Sun Solaris 8 and 9. Highlights in this version are a fully
worked off run-command (RC) facility and the greatly increased package
quality due to the rigorous application of fully automated package
input checking against programmatically written down style, syntax and
semantics constraints."
