Moving an existing rpmfusion package into Fedora
|[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]|
Hi all,I've been getting some conflicting advice as to what to do about moving a patent unencumbered version of package that has existed in RPMFusion for some time.
The package is qtractor (a digital audio workstation/ sequencer), software we'd like to showcase as part of Fedora 18's Audio Spin. Removing libmad (MP3) library deps was simple enough via a compile time flag and a Review request was raised . Using audacity/audacity-freeworld as a precedent it was suggested that we rename qtractor in RPMfusion to qtractor-freeworld and have it Conflict: with Fedora's qtractor.
The problem here is that RPMFusion users may have their libmad version silently replaced by the one in Fedora during the transition.
One solution here is to leave qtractor as it is in RPMfusion and rename the one in Fedora to something else (qtractor-free?) and perhaps use alternatives to permit coexistence, removing the need for conflicts
Is this reasonable? regards, Brendan  https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=797418 -- packaging mailing list packaging@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx https://admin.fedoraproject.org/mailman/listinfo/packaging
