    v1 v6  
    11This is a bare bones, born out of necessity idea. Essentially it allows end users a controlled method for installing OptionalPackages from within Haiku.

    3 `optpkgman` could be the name of the CLI application

    44{{{
    5 -l, --list        Lists the available OptionalPackages
    6 -a, --add <name>  Installs an OptionalPackage and it's OptionalPackageDependencies
     5Usage: ./optpkgman.sh [-l] [-a]
     6-l      List installable packages
     7-a      Add a package and all of it's dependencies

    9 When Haiku is being built from source code, the following is imported into optpkgman:
    10 {{{
    11 build/jam/OptionalPackages
    12 build/jam/OptionalPackageDependencies
    13 }}}
    14 By importing the data from the build system, the OptionalPackages for that revision and architecture would be used.
     10There 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.

    18 Portions of [http://dev.haiku-os.org/browser/haiku/trunk/src/apps/installer/UnzipEngine.cpp  src/apps/installer/UnzipEngine.cpp] or [http://dev.haiku-os.org/browser/haiku/trunk/build/scripts/build_haiku_image build/scripts/build_haiku_image]  could most likely be utilized.
     13The script will determine the revision of Haiku and use that to download the appropriate build/jam/.... files from svn.
