Like with libdvdcss, I would love to provide an extension for it, or to at least for someone to be able to upload one to the repo to make it simple for those who would like to watch their legally purchased DVD's. But the license and legal requirements dictate otherwise. We just have to abide, since we will respect upstream license requirements, even if we personally disagree.
This is why it is crucial that there is a personal repo (PPR) with bi-directional qualities. Would be perfect if we could 'save to repo' as easily as saving a file in a file manager. What is not available in the main repo we can simply download, prepare into a tcz and save to our PPR, freeing the TinyCore team from these issues. Just means enabling a easy way for things into as well as out of the repo for us end-users.
In fact a PPR seems even better than a standard file manager as an all around file management practice. And not just for apps but everything...apps, folders, folders/files in iso's/vhd's ...next is packages (collections of all previous).
This would be a feature unlike any other repo and is a perfect fit for TinyCore.
Essentially then the repo would serve as a powerful middle tier between the OS and the file system, rendering a much more manageable scenario.
I have been planning on doing it via vsFtpd server, but like the SqlLite approach even better. I just gotta have it in a cross platform development system. Would help out immensely in all kinds of ways.
Thanks again to the team for all your great work thus far. TinyCore truly is a world class engineering marvel for sure regardless.
