1 Chris,
3 Thanks for your comments, and I'll work on the BO issue ;-)

8 The XAMPP distribution, at,
9 is comprehensive as it coordinates the installation of apache, mysql, perl,
10 and php as a connected system. All of the various configuration files are
11 structured so that all of the pieces interact with each other, a step that
12 we would otherwise need to do as manual processes.
14 The included web application, the primary piece that would be grabbed from
15 the project, modified, and included in GAMPP, includes a number of pages
16 which display all of the functional components installed as part of XAMPP,
17 such as the image building and PDF building components and links to the
18 installed web apps that are part of XAMPP (webalizer, phpMyAdmin, and
19 phpSQLiteAdmin).
21 So I guess GAMPP for the most part would act like kde-meta in that it pulls
22 all of the disparate pieces together into a single deployment package. It
23 then adds the web app that can be used to test the final installation.
25 To quote the XAMPP site:
27 XAMPP is an easy to install Apache distribution containing MySQL, PHP and
28 Perl. XAMPP is really very easy to install and to use - just download,
29 extract and start.
31 The goals of GAMPP would be similar yet apply to the gentoo world and
32 conform to the gentoo way of handling the installations.
