I don't think that ReactOs nor it's package manager are important enough
to tell people how to package their programs. So i still think that a
little script for each package is the best way to handle it.

So would you agree to put it on the svn-server or not ? In addition to
the program itself there are this 3 things that had to be hosted in a
1. The program downloads tree.xml where all program are listed.
2. A detailed description with all informations e.g. vendor, license ...
3. The install script. With all informations of how to get and install
