If you are only building application bundles for Darwin platforms, have no interest in server Swift, you don’t *need* to look into SPM for now. But as its going to be part of Xcode soon, and if you want to help shape into something you would be interested it, its always worth looking at it now.

Xcode has been build responsibilities, including many which SPM does not currently address and may never will: building application bundles for Apple platforms, building resource bundles, building Darwin frameworks (I'm fairly sure SPM currently only builds simple libraries).
