I sent this proposal to f-m-l about a week ago to gather comments, and
there were no serious disagreements with the proposal which have not yet
been addressed (thanks to Tibbs and Toshio for their feedback).
Basically, I want to establish a set of guidelines for packaging Tcl
extensions, as we already have guidelines for other popular scripting
languages. In addition to making Tcl packages more consistent with each
other, it will also help work toward fixing my pet-peeve bug (bz #226893)
Please let me know if I need to do anything to help get these draft
Currently there is no guideline regarding fortran 90 .mod, it seems to
me that one is needed. These files are generated by gfortran when
building a module. These are text files, but not intended to be read by
humans. They are architecture dependent. When compiling some code that
uses the module, the .mod has to be found in the include path (for
example in a directory specified by -I).
Where should the .mod be installed? I propose
(f90 may also be replaced by another meaningfull subdirectory name).
This directory could be called %_fmoddir
And add -I%_fmoddir in FFLAGS when compiling some code that
requires the module.
The optimal situation would be to have %_fmoddir defined in rpm macros
and -I%_fmoddir added to default FFLAGS.
So my first question is what is your advice about fortran modules
My second is, in case it is meaningful, what about my proposal regarding
We had an incomplete vote at the last meeting:
* Specifying the root directory for LTSP as /var/lib/ltsp
* Not yet accepted (4 - 0)
* Voting for: abadger1999 rdieter spot tibbs
Could other folks weigh in on this soon, so that I can pass this onto
Also, we decided that the
should be pushed via the feature process, and FESCo had no issues with
this. However, my understanding is that Patrice does not want to do
that. If that's the case, we seem to be at an impasse. How do we
drive this issue forward?
While the current spec template in the Fonts SIG wiki
documents common Fedora Fonts packaging practices, it's never been
I intend to submit it to FPC soon.
If anyone on the fonts list object to part of this page or wants
something clarified, please speak now
