Description: Color filesystem layout
I don't know what BR gawk in kde-filesystem but I've kept it.
The build dependency on gawk isn't needed at all; you might as well get rid of
it. It's needed in the kde-filesystem package because that specfile actually
Packaging-wise, I see nothing wrong with this package. It only contains three
directories (two empty) and one set of RPM macros, and macro usage, specfile
naming, package naming, permissions, dependencies and directory ownership are
all OK. On that I'm inclined to approve this.
However, I wonder at the need to make a separate filesystem package for three
directories, and the annoyance at needing something to provide color-filesystem
forever once this gets in even if it turns out it's not a good idea. Has anyone
talked to the maintainer of the filesystem package to see if these three
directories could be added? The same goes for the rpm folks and the macros.
I've tried to raise the problem on fedora-devel-list:
But I didn't get much answear.
I thought the problem to include theses macros and directories to the filesystem
package means directories to be part of the "Filesystem Hierarchy Standard",
which they aren't until then.
I guess that there are many directories in the filesystem package that
are not in the FHS and, even if not, it is not an issue to add a set of
common directories in -- if they really fit in.
Any filesystem maintainer to gives advices ?
Can i add this myself ?
I guess anyone who has an opinion has had a chance to comment here or on the
mailing list, and at this point I'd approve it if you drop the unnecessary gawk
Ok, let's introduce color-filesystem
Can I remove gawk just before import?
Yes, go ahead.
