Common package and patch management for SUSE Linux

Zypp - SUSE package management

Zypp is the integration of SUSE's yast2 Package manager and Ximian's libredcarpet. At Novell we used two solutions so far - Red Carpet and YaST package manager - and decided to merge both in a best of breed approach. Zypp features brings SUSE package management technology to a world of new possibilities like runtime dependencies on hardware, patterns, full-featured patches and Zenworks integration for a easy enterprise upgrade path.

In this talk this technologies will be presented among the current integration of them into the products, the problems faced during the transition and the current roadmap for the future releases.
