I've been playing with the idea of building a rudimentary package installer, and I was wondering if anyone was willing to put in the extra effort to package their hacks. Here's what I was thinking.
all hack, programs, mods, etc would be packaged in a archive. The archive would include all the neccessary programs and two shell scripts, instal and unistall.
When a user installed a package, a installer app would extract the files execute the install script (moving files, setting permissions, etc) then move the uninstall script to a common directory.
The installer app would generate a list of installed apps by browsing the list of uninstall scripts. If someone decided they wanted to remove something, the package installer would run the unistall shell script and everything would be removed.
Now I'm willing to put in some effort to build the package installer and come up with a basic scheme for the scripts, but before I do I was wondering if anyone was willing to actually start packaging their hacks.
