Well, to me, the name market and all of it connotations is quite
doesn't really fit with the spirit of a community distribution, based
more than pure commercial exchange as the various proposed name
When samuel presented his idea, I was quite interested because it would
allows me as a packager
to find who would be ok to test packages, to collaborate when i need
confirmation for a bug
and so on.
But it seems that the vast majority of proposal are geared toward
replicating the model
of Apple Appstore, Google market and others :
- app market, app box, software database, app center, Appworld,
Where is the collaboration in all of this ?
