|Full description='swbis' aims to implement the POSIX packaging standard with useful extensions. Working utilities include swpackage, swverify, swcopy, swlist, and swinstall. Package security is provided by embedded control files containing md5, sha1, and sha512 digests, and GPG signatures. swbis is back-compatible with free software source tarballs because package meta-data is contained in-band in the prescribed directory. Since swbis supports nil control directory names, the package layout need not change except for the addition of this directory. The swbis utilities are network transparent by direct use of SSH, and do not have to be installed on the target hosts. swbis run-time packages can be delivered, by swinstall, to any GNU, BSD, or Unix-like host with no new provisioning requirements for the remote host. Since run-time packages are POSIX tar archives, they may be unpacked using the system tar utility. The spec is available at http://www.opengroup.org/publications/catalog/c701.htm.

Extensions to the POSIX packaging standard

'swbis' aims to implement the POSIX packaging standard with useful extensions. Working utilities include swpackage, swverify, swcopy, swlist, and swinstall. Package security is provided by embedded control files containing md5, sha1, and sha512 digests, and GPG signatures. swbis is back-compatible with free software source tarballs because package meta-data is contained in-band in the prescribed directory. Since swbis supports nil control directory names, the package layout need not change except for the addition of this directory. The swbis utilities are network transparent by direct use of SSH, and do not have to be installed on the target hosts. swbis run-time packages can be delivered, by swinstall, to any GNU, BSD, or Unix-like host with no new provisioning requirements for the remote host. Since run-time packages are POSIX tar archives, they may be unpacked using the system tar utility. The spec is available at http://www.opengroup.org/publications/catalog/c701.htm.
