format Package for the update function.
 
Could you describe how to create your installation packages so that
software can be adapted to be use with this functionallity.

the idea to simply select a packade and upload to gain functionallity is appealing.

I will make a short howto for building custom packages soon.

As starting point for you:

1) The packages are normal .zip files. If you rename a .pkg file to .zip
extension you can extract them.

2) Inside is always a file called package.ins. This is a text file that
includes the commands for the installation.

3) If you want to build a new package, it is nescessary that you
build the .zip file with the "Do not store path" option.
