Understanding Software Collections


Software Collections are a solution for RPM-based Linux distributions for installing different versions of software, or software not distributed by the upstream vendor. For users who want to run different versions of system libraries, or developers who want to distribute newer or different software for major Linux distros, Software Collections are the answer.

This talk will start with the rationale for Software Collections (SCLs), then discuss how to install SCLs, how to package them, and how major Linux distros and developers will interact with the upstream project.
