Having happily used the latest dPup (beta4) for a week or so, there is one feature I would like to recommend for the next beta or full version.

Dpup is unique I believe in that it can download directly from debian
repo... however... dPup can use deb files from Lenny / Etch / Squeeze /or/ Sid equally well ... so... could we add these repos to the PPM configure list ?

One part of debian that may be overlooked is "backports". Also worth mentioning here, the excellent site at Debian-Multimedia...
neither of which are directly accessible thru dPup PPM presently.

I cant get enough of dPup, but I think these additions would make it still better.

Go into the puppy package manager and push configure ppm.
You'll get instructions how to add other repos.

Time savers:
Find packages in a snap and install using Puppy Package Manager (Menu).
Consult Wikka
Use peppyy's puppysearch
