Why is there no Universal Linux Repository?
Let Me Rephrase my Question
Aside from the fact that different Distro's use different package managers and formats for their binary's.
Why don't we have a Single Centralized Set of Repository's, like GIT in a way.
But more like a mixture of GIT/ibiblio/AUR/Wiki.
Filtering into individual channels ie Debian/Ubuntu/Mint/Fedora/Arch/OpenSuse...
It would make sense to have a centralized location for Collaboration/Development/Archiving Linux Software.
Maybe we could standardize the package versions and release cycles and bug fixes across Distributions.
Is it simply too hard to implement and coordinate something like this amongst the Linux community's?
I dont think it would be to hard to do, and quite worth the effort.
But at the same time i have no idea where i would even begin to try and orchestrate such a complex system.
Well it was just a thought i had (it happens often)
Any other thoughts on the topic?
