[wpkg-users] recommended directory structure for wpkg packages in combination with using unattended from http://sf.net/projects/unatttended

Are there any people out there that are using the combination of
unattended from sourceforge and wpkg from wpkg.org?

If you are using the two, how have you decided to combine or split the
two products 'packages tree'?

We currently have two samba shares, one for unattended and one for wpkg.
And each one has it's own package tree. But this can easily lead to
silly duplication, of some packages being in both package trees. And
worse than that some packages not liking being upgraded from a different
source path than they were originally installed from etc.

How have you solved it?

Or maybe the feedback some of you experienced guys have on this is, to
not use unatteneded for anything other than the OS install and have
absolutely everything else done by wpkg. What hard and valuable lessons
have you learned over time?

Thanks for any pointers on this.

Also is there a directory structure for wpkg repositories that is
becomning the 'standard', maybe due to the way some of the gui or other
auxiliary stuff like installation scripts are being made available? Just
trying to minimize the local changes we have to do, to what is being
made available for download.
