> The goal of the review process is to improve the proposal under review through constructive criticism and, eventually, determine the direction of Swift. When writing your review, here are some questions you might want to answer in your review:

+0. Meh.

> * Is the problem being addressed significant enough to warrant a change to the Swift Package Manager?

Not really. The package manifest API has lots of serious deficiencies and this proposal shuffles a couple of names around. Not sure it’s really worth the hassle, to be honest. It’s certainly very far from a “redesign”!

> * Does this proposal fit well with the feel and direction of Swift?

Sure, I suppose

> * If you have used other languages, libraries, or package managers with a similar feature, how do you feel that this proposal compares to those?

I’ve used other package managers. Again, it’s really neither here nor there.

> * How much effort did you put into your review? A glance, a quick reading, or an in-depth study?

Read the prior discussion, and the proposal again.
