Ah, I think I didn't make myself clear... Conary is a package
installation manager. vcs-pkg tries to address package maintenance,
the development side of things. Like e.g. I maintain mdadm for
Debian and would like to have a better workflow to be able to save
time, work more closely with upstream, and reach out to the other
distros, so that we can profit from each other's work and ideas.
Does this make sense now?
