When you install Warehouse/OpenRepos how does SFOS's package management handle having multiple sources for the same package? eg: If someone has built a newer version of tar as a dependency of a package I install from Warehouse, will Warehouse overwrite the system version of tar with it's own?

When you add a repository from openrepos, it will be used just like the official repositories. When a package is found in multiple repos, only the newest version of the package will be considered. In your case, the version of tar from openrepos will be used if it is newer than the one from Jolla's repo.

Ah, not a problem. I wasn't sure if the SFOS package manager had priorities similar to openSUSE. This clears it up, thankyou.
