if renaming is consence, we should implement it right after branching
F17 in devel-tree.
Probably one should write an example .spec, especially taking care on
sane requires, provides.
Maybe we should make a wiki page to coordinate this step (overview,
which package is required to change, which is changed, etc.
Bohuslav, would you start such a page? We could divide up reviews. I
would volunteer to do some reviews.
so it seems that we should get this started now, when we have plenty of time for Fedora. I
was thinking about this a lot and here is what I came up with:
1) We should create a fpc ticket, that would summarize what we want to do, and more
importantly, it would ask fpc to add a section about Django and its plugins to Python
2) Then, after approved by fpc, I will create a wiki page that will hold the list of
Django plugins/extensions, that were/were not renamed.
3) Then, we should first review python-django, which is already in work , but I believe
it might be a good idea to wait for the fpc approval, before we actually approve and push
4) Finally, we should do all the other packages. In case some of the packagers are not
responsive, we should have a proven packager standing by (I know two personally, so that
shouldn't be a problem).
As mentioned in the e-mail I'm responding to, there are clear guidelines how to rename
packages, but after giving it a thought, I really think we should cooperate with fpc on
this, since we have quite a large number of packages to rename. Also, for the sake of
users, I would recommend to add Provides: django-foo to all, even the new, packages. The
users will probably want to install everything as django-foo, not python-django-foo. (So
for example Django itself would be python-django and would provide "Django"
because of the renaming guidelines and "django" so that it is consistent for
users.) But this would definitelly need to be approved by fpc.
What do you think? If you agree, I will go on with creating the fpc ticket.
Thank you all for cooperation.
(and sorry to Matthias for sending this e-mail just to him at first. I really promise to
learn using the reply-to-all button.)
