Not sure what we could do here, except change the URL to be our URL and
change the description to be "Package management software" or such.
Since Adélie has a plan to replace this, I'm not sure if it's better to
change the URL and description now -- and again once the fork/rewrite is
ready -- or to leave it be until the fork has materialized. Removing
references to Alpine here seems counter-intuitive until we properly fork
or rebuild it. If a user comes across bugs in apk-tools, how will Adélie
handle them prior to the rewrite? Are we patching issues as we come
across them and avoiding upstream for $reasons? If so, then perhaps
removing Alpine's name early can help us identify more flaws in
apk-tools (since users will be coming to us for help) and further inform
better design in the replacement.
References an Alpine bug report that appears to not even exist any more.
URL is set to Alpine's home page. This whole package can probably be
removed since we likely won't change libcs. musl-dev can provide
libc-dev, bsd-compat-headers can be moved to its own package, and then
libc-dev can be removed. If we decide at a later date to have multiple
libcs, we can always put it back.
Alpine distribution. Not sure if we need it any more since we don't
support PaX anyway.
We need to create and ship our own data.
References 'packages Alpine don't ship'. We need to go through this,
determine if we ship any, and then remove the comment.
+1 to all the above.
We need to completely rework how GRUB configuration works before 1.0.
This is a mess and a nightmare for users.
Do we know the specific pain points or is it a general "this needs to be
better?" If we know where the pain points are, it can help guide the

Nope, upstream is http://0pointer.de/lennart/projects/libcanberra/

Alpine distribution. We need to package it ourselves.
References an Alpine commit re: aarch64 support. Investigate and remove

Best to you and yours in 2019,
Overall a good idea IMO. We're distinct from Alpine despite using the
same PM, and even that is changing in the coming months/years.
