What is a Sitepackage?
A Sitepackage is a TYPO3 Extension that containers all relevant configuration for a Website. Having all configuration stored in a package keeps it protected from unauthorized access. As Extension your Sitepackage will manage your dependencies to other Extensions and/or the TYPO3 Version. This will ease your deployment and enables you to put the configuration of your Webiste under Version Control.
