Package (package management system)Software package – It's essentially a software package, thus describing it through "package management system" doesn't seem to fit. At the same time, already existing Software package doesn't make much sense as a disambiguation page. — Dsimic (talk | contribs) 03:28, 17 October 2014 (UTC)

  • Strong oppose a software package is more likely the non-"package" (ie. DEB/RPM/tarball/etc) meanings than the DEB/RPM/etc meaning. -- 67.70.35.44 (talk) 05:18, 17 October 2014 (UTC)
  • Comment the most likely meaning would be retail boxed software, but we don't seem to have an article on software retail sales. -- 67.70.35.44 (talk) 05:20, 17 October 2014 (UTC)
  • Oppose - "software package" has a more general meaning than what's described in Package (package management system). Disambiguation is appropriate. ~KvnG 13:36, 20 October 2014 (UTC)
