Saw over at PCLinuxOnline that OpenPKG 1.3 has been released

The OpenPKG project released version 1.3 of their unique RPM-based cross-platform Unix software packaging facility. Well known by vigilant Unix system administrators, OpenPKG is the world leading instrument for deployment and maintenance of Open Source software when administration crosses Unix platform boundaries. OpenPKG 1.3 provides 400 selected packages which include proven versions of popular Unix software like Apache, BIND, GCC, GnuPG, MySQL, OpenSSH, Perl, Postfix, Samba and teTeX -- all carefully packaged for easy deployment on the officially supported Unix platforms FreeBSD 4.8 and 5.1, Debian GNU/Linux 2.2 and 3.0, Red Hat Linux 9, SuSE Linux 8.2, and Sun Solaris 8 and 9. Highlights in this version are a fully worked off run-command (RC) facility and the greatly increased package quality due to the rigorous application of fully automated package input checking against programmatically written down style, syntax and semantics constraints.
