Ximian excited about Red Carpet package manager

Author: JT Smith

LWN.net features Ximian on its new desktop page. "Ximian's crew was most excited about Red Carpet, their package management
product designed to make updating RPM-based systems seamless and painless. It
resolves dependencies in an intelligent fashion across the network. It is supported
across all major distributions, including Debian. One of the interesting features of Red
Carpet is Ximian's use of Internet cache pioneer Akamai. Akamai's globally
distributed Web caches are used to distribute RPM packages to make Evolution users
downloads very fast."
