01:44 ugexe japhb: yes. its too bad it doesnt work with multiple packages having MAIN (well it does, but only one gets used)
01:45 ugexe unfortunate because it would allow scripts to easily extend themselves to add command line options etc
03:52 MadcapJake seems pertinent: https://medium.com/@sdboyer/so-you-want-to-write-a-package-manager-4ae9c17d9527#.wjschc6m7

10:42 nine The "so you want to write a package manager" post might be interesting, but the author drowns his insights in so much inconsequential babbling. A tedious read.

15:08 ugexe its just the author complaining about the (obvious) tradeoffs you have to make
16:29 nine Well it _is_ interesting. He could have just written in in half as much text without losing contents.

20:49 mst nine: I'm not finding it tedious, I'm mostly thinking "ah, yes, trying to head off at the pass all the overenthusiastic things people do" :)
22:03 mst though he misses a point, there's something in between a spec file and a lock file that's useful
