Um.. I think the current plan is "apk version 42" or something like
that. The latest that's being worked on is signed packages.

has natanel's notes on the latest changes. I have some notes on the

Sure, although I'm not sure this is much help. If you don't mind, drop
me a line of what info you'd like to see, or is missing - I'm supposed
to be the infrastructure/documentation guy - so your impressions will be
very helpful.

(And, I hope we can answer your questions, as well.)
