This project is not part of the GNU Project.

The purpose of this project is to create a package system for the GNU OS. That system would exploit the features that the Hurd provides in order to build it upon a consistent, modular set of interfaces.

It will follow the line marked by Richard Stallman's idea on using filesystems to manage packages, and getting UnionFS to put "install" them. In addition, it will include features that allow distribution of system software through the GNUnet network.
The distribution system works in an anarchistic way. Every contributor would be allowed to upload his/her work, then the user community would evaluate it democraticaly so that the distribution system could use GPG and a set of complex rules to etermine wether a package can be trusted, wether its quality is acceptable, wether it follows the free software philosophy, etc.
