    3  * Extend packagefs to provide symlinks for base paths of packages and their dependencies (needed for dealing with packages that hard-code absolute paths).
     3 * packagefs:
     4   - Prepare for use in a chroot environment. Currently it resolves the package directory path in the kernel I/O context.
     5   - Support packages being copied to the `packages` directory. Currently only moving works.
     6   - Solve node removal issues. A currently executing program should not crash and burn when its package is removed.
     7   - Provide information about active packages to the tools that need it (e.g. the package solver).
     8   - Implement query support.
     9   - If necessary, add a caching mechanism to speed up mounting it.

    5  * Prepare packagefs to be usable in a chroot environment. Currently it resolves the package directory path in the kernel I/O context.
     11 * Build system:
     12   - Before creating packages (e.g. the user guide), all files must be identified, since packagefs is read-only.
     13   - Make the `update` feature of the build system usable again. Currently for anything in the `haiku.hpkg` package the whole package has to be rebuilt, which takes a rather long time.

    7  * Build system: Before creating packages (e.g. the user guide), all files must be identified, since packagefs is read-only.
     15 * Package building:
     16   - Work on tools to build Haiku packages in a clean chroot environment.
     17   - Define packaging guidelines and create a tool to check packages those.
     18   - Adjust build "recipes" for HaikuPorts packages as needed and build the packages.

    17  * Implement the package solver (as Oliver proposed based on libsatsolver).
    18 
    19  * Extend the package kit and the (CLI) package manager to support adding, removing, and updating packages. That probably also involves work on a server-side (i.e. repository) part.

    21  * Implement query support in packagefs.

    23  * If necessary, add a caching mechanism to packagefs to speed up mounting it.

    25  * Implement a GUI package manager.

     20 * Package kit/manager:

     23   - Implement a GUI package manager.
