This provides a brief overview of major features being discussed for future inclusion in pacman. This does not represent a complete list of all areas of pacman development (or even areas currently being developed...). All discussion about pacman development should take place on the pacman-dev mailing list

Feature Ideas

Package Signing

Idea: Package signing would make pacman transactions more secure. See FS#5331.

Development branch: newgpg

Tar-DB

Idea: Have the pacman database contained in a single/small number of tar file(s) instead of a large number of flat text files.

Development branch: Not started

Hooks

Idea: Pacman should have hooks to perform common tasks. See here for a more detail description.

Development branch: Not started

Optdepend Handling

Idea: Currently optdepends in pacman serve no purpose other than informational. It would be useful if these could be handled in a similar fashion to regular dependencies for many operations. See here for a more detail description.

Development branch: Not started
