Opera improves life for package managers

The other day I was reading over the Opera Desktop Team Blog and noticed that the new tarballs for 10.70 snapshots finally support improved repackaging. I can't tell you how happy I am about this.

Until this point, it has been a real pain to package up SlackBuilds for the latest Opera snapshots, because you have to use the Debian packages instead of the tarballs. Now that the tarballs support a repackaging option, however, that's no longer an issue, and there can be lots of cheering for those of us using systems like Slackware or other non Debian/RPM package managers.
