I was just dinging a round and found  a comparrison of gobo linux and nix packagmanager  , this was something i had not considdered before when posting about nix above. Perhaps if any one is interested  the comparrison might be informative...

The thing  that is most intresting about gobo imho is the alt-hierarchy.. for system & packages ,

As they put it at gobolinux.org
GoboLinux is an alternative Linux distribution which redefines the entire filesystem hierarchy.
In GoboLinux you don't need a package database because the filesystem is the database: each program resides in its own directory,

That and the package system includes "Build specifications" in gobo called Stand-alone 'recipes' much like nix 'expressions' this enables rebuilding packages localy .

Finding the above gobo/nix comparrison's remided me of a few other past topics that mention gobo .

 - What's the future direction of TC?
Perhaps for community contributed extensions more needs to be added to the .info file for build instructions for those that wish such?
I am certainly open to GoboLinux style of self contained extensions.
