Reusing the same git module for different compat versions?
|[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]|
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 Hi all, Is it permissible to use a single compat package to provide different 'compat' binary packages on different Fedora releases? The specific use case is for Vala: our Fedora packaging now allows for parallel installation; you already can rebuild and install Vala packages with different API levels side by side. Vala upstream tends to create new API releases quite often, however, and given that sometimes packages stop compiling against the newer API, providing API-specific compatibility versions seems to be a lot of work (and the package would have to be retired as soon as the targeted release is EOLed). Does the FPC allow having a single 'compat-vala' Git module, that would target the API level one lower than the one shipped in the main vala package, for every supported Fedora release? The package will be very similar to the main vala one and changes can just be cherry-picked, so maintenance is no problem.
