There's (where development has stalled) and its fork (a package manager used by eg. OpenWRT, actively maintained). OpenWRT is used in home networking by enthusiasts, which is on-topic here.

Recently, there was a question requesting being tagged with opkg, which I created by tagging it. I'm not sure though, if it would be preferable to synonymize them instead.


  • low-traffic tags (there are some more not tagged appropriately)
  • they are related
  • probably a lot of question applies to both of them


  • opkg might have features not available in ipkg or other incompatibilities

What to do about these tags?

    A better option to me might be to tag wiki these appropriately, and mention the stallage and how opkg is still active there.

  • This is the kind of opinion I wanted to get. I at least added some tag wiki excerpts, for a more elaborate tag wiki I'm lacking time and interest in those tags.
