RFC: removal of packaging directory

From: Pawel Kot
Subject: RFC: removal of packaging directory
Date: Thu, 10 Aug 2006 21:38:06 +0200


At 0.6.13 release Leo Costela requested removal of debian/ dir from
gnokii sources. After some thought and IRC discussions I'd like to
remove all over packaging directory.

Rationale: I don't think anyone builds packages using our scripts. And
nobody maintains them: it often turns out that new release cannot be
built with them. And also they seem not be portable. It's not possible
to have one debian/ dir for all Debian-based distros. Also from what I
can see Fedora, SUSE, PLD and other RPM-based distros also use
different specs.

Moreover the packages are mostly up to date in distros. Additionally
Matthias Jahn is doing great job preparing CVS builds with
Debian/Ubuntu packages. It would be cool if someone would do the same
with FC or SUSE.

Any cons?

I plan to do the next release before the end of the month. On 30th
August I go for rather long vacation to US. And I'd like to release
0.6.99 before that.

take care,
Pawel Kot
