As Stephan wrote, soffice is the main problem (and I wonder if
unopkg is in the same situation or is not problematic).
unopkg is in the same situation, of course.
I would find it just reasonable that openoffice.org
and the oo*
launchers are kept free for Apache OpenOffice. Using the aoo*
convention for OpenOffice is not common: executables from other
Apache projects are not prefixed with an "a" (i.e., Fedora doesn't
have "ahttpd", "asvn" and so on).
That is not a technical argument, either. Apache OpenOffice is the
newcomer to the distribution, so IMHO it is your responsibility to
resolve any clashes with already present components (in this case by
renaming the executables or not installing them). It would not be the
first case of that in Fedora.
LibreOffice modules could
reasonably adopt the lo* convention to reflect the current naming.
Anyway, this is common sense rather than a source of package
conflict, so if there are technical arguments against this we can
surely discuss further.
Sorry, but I do not want having to explain to users (and bug reporters)
why running ooffice (oowriter,...) on command line suddenly fails
because the executable does not exist.
