Everything about AppGet is Open Source, from the code that runs on your machine to the manifests that define our packages.
We use pull-requests in GitHub to accept new or updated packages.
AppGet doesn't need official package maintainers. Anyone can submit a pull request for any package.
All AppGet packages are defined by data rather than scripts. This makes them safer, more predictable and easier to maintain and understand.
