exndbam Repository Format

The exndbam repository format is used on Exherbo to track packages installed from an exheres. It is not used on Gentoo and derived distributions; VDB serves the equivalent purpose there.

As well as the general keys supported for all repositories, the following keys have meaning for exndbam format repositories:

location
The location of the repository. Mandatory.
builddir
The directory to use when 'building' a package for an uninstall (a temporary directory is needed for various operations). Optional.
root
The root to which this exndbam repository corresponds. Optional.
name
The repository's name. Defaults to "installed". Usually only changed if multiple exndbam repositories are required.
