What is “the aliens Catalog”

The aliens Catalog is BANDIT catalog, a set of bundles and their corresponding origins, that can be used with the BANDIT toolkit to install third party binary products in a system.

The catalog is provided for user’s convinience. The use of this catalog for installing binary bundles in a system implies fully trusting the creators of these packages and their binary code. The bundles included in this catalog do not contain the actual binaries, just the recipes to help install these packages in an automated way.
