NFR: Split jigdo in CLI and WYSIWYG package
Last modified: 2017-04-06 06:37:16 EDT
I am using the latest jigdo released in EPEL for EL5 the moment on CentOS 5.3 at the time of writing: jigdo-0.7.3-4.el5
When I installed jigdo a lot of libX related packages were dragged into my minimal installation. Since jigdo has a functional CLI interface (jigdo-lite) and a WYSIWYG interface which is currently not fully functional).
Since I do my work mainly on the CLI (on a system as minimal as possible) I was wondering if it would be possible to split the package in a non-WYSIWYG package (containing only jigdo-lite) and a WYSIWYG package (containing graphical stuff), this would save me a lot of libX* related packages:

I assume jigod-file would also go in the minimal package. What do you think it should be called?

I guess that would be nice indeed.

Why not keep the current naming convention used for the programs itself? Is there a problem with that? IMHO jigdo for the graphical UI package is OK as well as me being satisfied with the name jigdo-lite for the CLI package. Perhaps jigdo-cli could also be an option (analogue to php/php-cli).
