Open Carpet is a project which aims to provide tools to easily set up and maintain a Red Carpet software repository.
With the release of version 2.0 of the Red Carpet Daemon, users can now specify multiple services which provide an array of software channels, making Red Carpet a powerful and general software management tool, without needing a centralized server run by Novell.
Note that this software is not an adequate replacement for Novell’s ZENworks Linux Management product. If you are looking for an enterprise-quality management solution, Open Carpet is not for you. The target audience is third-party software distributors.
