Package Manager Manager Beta

Bedrock Linux's Package Manager Manager, or pmm, is now available in Bedrock's beta channel. This subsystem provides Bedrock-aware abstractions for multi-package-manager and cross-package-manager operations.

If you would like to help test it, first register your system with the beta channel and update to the latest beta. Make sure you merge any update-provided /bedrock/etc/bedrock.conf files into your main bedrock.conf, as this feature includes a new[pmm]` configuration section.

pmm will not be accessible immediately after updating to the corresponding beta. You will need to first populate the user_interface field of the new [pmm] section in bedrock.conf. See the comments above user_interface. Once you have done that, run brl apply as root. pmm should now be in your $PATH; try running pmm --help.
