I think it would be a good idea to rename rabbitvcs subpackage to
rabbitvcs-core for the following reasons:
1) the name "rabbitvcs-core" is more consistent with Debian package naming;
2) we could drop rabbitvcs-core Obsoletes/Provides which are right now there to
preserve upgrade path from upstream binary packages;
3) currently "rabbitvcs" package cannot be built as noarch as it's the main
package, but renaming it to "rabbitvcs-core" would fix that;
4) I believe it's confusing for end users if a package is named "rabbitvcs".
I see a package named like that, I'd expect it to actually provide some
functionality. In reality one needs to install one of the -nautilus, -gedit etc
subpackages for basic functionality. Renaming the package to -core would make
it more obvious that it only contains shared components.
What do you think?
There was a recent thread on fedora-devel list about -core subpackages and
I am really not sure if it's a good idea, but perhaps there should also be a
metapackage which pulls in all other rabbitvcs-* subpackages.
P.S. Can you fix the commented out thunar sections wrt Requiring fully
versioned main package and the mv -> cp change?
