The Canterbury Distribution

I'm sure you already heard the news about the new joined Canterbury Distribution, and are eager about details.

While our teams are struggling to integrate all the existing infrastructure, it's my pleasure to announce that the first pieces of the collaboration are already available for our users.

As a first measurement, a common Canterbury Package Manager, called cant will be made available in all distributions. It is already available for the distribution formerly known as Archlinux, and with the next mirror push will also be available for those used to run Debian.

You'll be pleased to know, that the command line syntax isn't much of a change, you can still run cant search, cant install or cant remove, but future version will also introduce all the features known from the other distributions.

Stay tuned for further updates of Canterbury Linux!
