To be the best package management system ever. To change the nature of package creation/distribution. To simplify all aspects of the process of writing and disseminating a library. To speed up parts of the system that are slow.

Subgoals for package writers

It should be easy to submit a package to the repository.

Subgoals for application writers

It should be easy to access a package listed in the repository. The repository should handle dependencies automatically.

Subgoals for end-users

It should be faster than the current tcl library load times. Root access shouldn't be necessary to add packages to one's local set of packages.
