In 2012, we wrote about the IPS repository being in the works. Unfortunately, we have done no progress on it. We’ve talked about IPS many times, and while people agree it’s a great idea to have an IPS repository, they are unable to devote time to it.
What’s needed for the IPS repo to happen? It is unlikely that any of the existing package maintainers pick this up. Somebody new needs to step up.
The closest existing thing is sfe.opencsw.org which is hosted in our domain, but it’s an entirely separate effort which shares no code with OpenCSW.
