During the research phase, we have found out two interesting works that share some goals with PackageFS. The first one we present is the GNU package manager translator which aims to become the implementation of the original Stallman's idea for the GNU system. The other one is the GoboLinux distribution. This latter proposes a new file system hierarchy that is compatible, but not consistent with the Filesystem Hierarchy Standard.
