I still think it's a great starting point to look for software and is a terrific tool.
Yes, indeed. Good place to get your opks if you for some reason can't install them from PC.
Not only that. It is also meant to keep the gcw software up2date without the need to have a look for in different places.
Speaking of different spaces. GuyInDogSuit already mentioned the problem, that the repository don't have every software and even if they have it, it is often not up2date. The reasons also are well known now (btw. I even forgot one reason: The gcw repository is in fact not done yet. So you can't just login as developer and upload opks, you have to write to surkow directly. However this is for now and will change).
So I thought about a second repository, not hosted by gcw, for software, that is not up2date or not suitable for the official repository. I don't know, whether you all know EvilDragon, the German distributor of the gcw. He started being a distributor with the gp2x, distributed the wiz and the caanoo and is now the maker of the open pandora. Furthermore he made a quite cool archive on his webpage gp2x.de/openhandhelds.org for software for these devices (maybe even dingux, never used this). This archive now moved to gp32x.com and hopefully is reuseable in some days.
So we could use it for software, which is not in the official repository.
Think of it like Debian Stable and Debian SID or Ubuntu Official and Medibuntu or similar.
OPKManager would then support both repositories.
