;;; Commentary:

;; package-get -
;;	Retrieve a package and any other required packages from an archive
;; The idea:
;;	A new XEmacs lisp-only release is generated with the following steps:
;;	1. The maintainer runs some yet to be written program that
;;	   generates all the dependency information.  This should
;;	   determine all the require and provide statements and associate
;;	   them with a package.
;;	2. All the packages are then bundled into their own tar balls
;;	   (or whatever format)
;;	3. Maintainer automatically generates a new `package-get-base'
;;	   data structure which contains information such as the
;;	   package name, the file to be retrieved, an md5 checksum,
;;	   etc (see `package-get-base').
;;	4. The maintainer posts an announcement with the new version
;;	   of `package-get-base'.
;;	5. A user/system manager saves this posting and runs
;;	   `package-get-update' which uses the previously saved list
;;	   of packages, `package-get-here' that the user/site
;;	   wants to determine what new versions to download and
;;	   install.
;;	A user/site manager can generate a new `package-get-here' structure
;;	by using `package-get-setup' which generates a customize like
;;	interface to the list of packages.  The buffer looks something
;;	like:
;;	gnus	- a mail and news reader
;;	[]	Always install
;;	[]	Needs updating
;;	[]	Required by other [packages]
;;	version: 2.0
;;	vm	- a mail reader
;;	[]	Always install
;;	[]	Needs updating
;;	[]	Required by other [packages]	
;;	Where `[]' indicates a toggle box
;;	- Clicking on "Always install" puts this into
;;	  `package-get-here' list.  "Needs updating" indicates a new
;;	  version is available.  Anything already in
;;	  `package-get-here' has this enabled.
;;	- "Required by other" means some other packages are going to force
;;	  this to be installed.  Clicking on  [packages] gives a list
;;	  of packages that require this.
;;	The `package-get-base' should be installed in a file in
;;	`data-directory'.  The `package-get-here' should be installed in
;;	site-lisp.  Both are then read at run time.
;; TODO:
;;	- Implement `package-get-setup'
;;	- Actually put `package-get-base' and `package-get-here' into
;;	  files that are read.
;;	- Allow users to have their own packages that they want installed
;;	  in ~/.xemacs/.
;;	- SOMEONE needs to write the programs that generate the
;;	  provides/requires database and makes it into a lisp data
;;	  structure suitable for `package-get-base'
;;	- Handle errors such as no package providing a required symbol.
;;	- Tie this into the `require' function to download packages
;;	  transparently.

(defvar package-get-base nil
  "List of packages that are installed at this site.
For each element in the alist,  car is the package name and the cdr is
a plist containing information about the package.   Typical fields
kept in the plist are:

version		- version of this package
provides	- list of symbols provided
requires	- list of symbols that are required.
		  These in turn are provided by other packages.
filename	- name of the file.
size		- size of the file (aka the bundled package)
md5sum		- computed md5 checksum
description	- What this package is for.
type		- Whether this is a 'binary (default) or 'single file package

More fields may be added as needed.  An example:

  (version \"<version 2>\"
   file \"filename\"
   description \"what this package is about.\"
   provides (<list>)
   requires (<list>)
   size <integer-bytes>
   md5sum \"<checksum\"
   type single
  (version \"<version 1>\"
   file \"filename\"
   description \"what this package is about.\"
   provides (<list>)
   requires (<list>)
   size <integer-bytes>
   md5sum \"<checksum\"
   type single

For version information, it is assumed things are listed in most
recent to least recent -- in other words, the version names don't have to
be lexically ordered.  It is debatable if it makes sense to have more than
one version of a package available.")
