So the Mozilla foundation, OpenOffice.org and the Mono project should handle all the
integration issues on their own?
The Mozilla distribution is a really good (bad?) example that shows how many wheels a vendor
needs to reinvent:
* A build far for many platforms (and they're always too far behind on Linux)
* Independent bug tracking system
* flawed integration (because the project needs to be self contained)
We will end up with a system made of klik packages.
A few other good programs whose author wanted to have the final say on their usage is qmail
and the rest of the djb programs. Great programs. But never got properly integrated.
