depend examples

Overview

This page is dedicated to fleshing out examples of dependency (software and otherwise) on the Web-At-Large.

Authors

Motivation

Right now, there many ways to install software; whether you're using binaries (apt-get, yum, rpm) or source (emerge, srpm, *-src), you have to go through a clearing house. Someone took the time to compile binaries or repackage source trees and write down what needed what.

But the fact is all of this information is already on the homepage for most software. Current aggregators rely on the author(s) submitting this information manually. Furthermore, commercial packages don't normally submit product information to sites like FreshMeat, SourceForge, or any language-specific repository (CPAN, PEAR). (This includes things like drivers.)

Because the information (version, dependency, package URLs, bug alerts) is already there (see below) it should be fairly straight-forward to figure out what people already do and "semantic it up."
