[edit] About

I think it would be good for the community to have some idea of the install base for applications. So I wrote a very quick and dirty way for people to submit their installed package list.

Announcement email http://lists.openmoko.org/pipermail/community/2010-April/061231.html

[edit] Installation

Try it with the following (will clobber anything called pop in /usr/bin):

wget http://www.timwise.co.uk/om/pop/pop.tar.gz
tar -C / -xzvf pop.tar.gz

[edit] submitting your package list

then submit your package list with

/usr/bin/pop
