Export bottle to archive vs. create package from bottle

I was wondering if anyone has any input on which is a better way to ensure you can quickly restore previoulsy installed applications either on other systems or, in the event you need to reinstall on your current system (say after a system rebuild). I have previously created a package from a bottle however it seems you have to remember to regularly create packages to ensure it's always based on the latest and greatest crossover build. Are archives a better way of handling this? Can you import these regardless of the version of crossover they were exported from?

Your thoughts please folks.

Unless you are a sysadmin deploying the bottle to many users or machines, you should probably be using bottle archives.


Hey there, I was wondering if you could go into more detail. I'm sure I cant be the only one who's interested in the differences and rational behind which is better for what. I have looked at the documentation and can't see anything specific, hence the question. :)
