Portage Tags: System administration tools

This week Shaman 2 was introduced on the Planet KDE.

The idea behind Shaman is that it should be a "package management (GUI)" for KDE which is as abstract, as extensible and as scriptable as possible.

By using different backends and having an even more abstract view on what a package management system is then PackageKit – in fact, PackageKit can be used as one of Shaman's backends – it might just be that Shaman is suitable for a GUI for Portage.

So, if any of the Gentoo devs think it would be high time to replace the (seemingly?) already dead Kuroo with a new and very tweakable GUI for KDEDario would be more then happy to cooperate in getting Shaman to use Portage as well.
