Status: Idea

Summary of idea:

Existing application installer is not customizable. Users cannot add items freely. Our goal is to build a customizable application installer. For example, users can add comment for software. Software introduction can be changed. New software items can be added. Existing software items can be removed. Under the user's permission, the changes to the software items can be uploaded to a web service on google app-engine, therefore other users will obtain a benefit by downloading the changes. This application installer supports extensions. Users can add their own function.

Ailurus is a simple application installer [1]. It helps install popular applications easily on Fedora. Our work is to write code for Ailurus.
