LinuxTag 2003: Wez Furlong on ZZ/OSS Installer

Here at LinuxTag, I presented our installer to Wez Furlong, who is very much involved in the PHP development. Wez himself had the idea of implementing an installer, so I showed him what we did.

In general, he really likes the ZZ/OSS Installer.

He proposed the following optimizations:

– preparsing XML in actual release of an application to spare time while executing e.g. dependencies resolving
– run package config command line to read parameters of applications installed on the Operating System

His reservations were:
– it’s GPL
– it’s relatively large (many files) and has a high memory footprint due to the XML parsing
