At Matt Miller's recommendation, I added Conary to the list of
packaging tools I'm investigating as a possible language independent
user level package management system:
(Sam Kottler actually suggested Conary to me at Flock a couple of
years ago, but I never got around to investigating it)

In trying to research that, I was having a lot of trouble finding
useful docs, so I filed an issue about that on their GitHub issue

Near term, they pointed out the clone of their old wiki from the rPath

Longer term, they've started putting updated docs together at (very bare bones at the moment,
but I suggested they look at MediaWiki export + Pandoc to convert some
of the old docs from the wiki clone).

They also mentioned that they've finally been able to fully open
source rBuilder itself, and pointed out for folks that
would like to try out conary, rmake and rbuild in a prebuilt VM.
