From the deployment side, I would like to see robust dependency
mechanisms - for example, in Monticello there is a notion of
prerequisites (ignore the fact they are changing and the Monticello
isn't a package manager) that can exist on various repositories. The
dependency mechanism that G-ran has talked about for the next version
of SM would ostensibly allow getting the modules to be loaded from
various places, not only a "central" server. Some sort of fallback
mechanism for package repositories would be very useful.
