Description (last modified by )
This is a bare bones, born out of necessity idea. Essentially it allows end users a controlled method for installing OptionalPackages from within Haiku.
installoptionalpackages is the name of the CLI application
Usage: installoptionalpackages [-l] [-a] -l List installable packages -a Add a package and all of it's dependencies
There are many flaws to this method. But it may be better than having end users manually install an incorrect optional package, as the correct version and it's dependencies are installed and have any symlinks created.
The script will determine the revision of Haiku and use that to download the appropriate build/jam/.... files from svn.
