Summary

Currently, manually installing software using deb files often requires downloading and installing multiple packages, which should be avoided. It would be ideal to use develop a special format using a tar.gz file (or similar) for the archive that contains the deb packages as well as a file that tells the installation program what order to install the packages, as well as other useful information.
