Re: KDE Sub-Packaging Approach on Fedora

Hi,

One part of the proposal that I think should be considered more
carefully is the strategy of having the main package Require all of
the subpackages. At first glance, this seems like a good idea,
allowing the user to install eg. all of kdegames with a yum install
kdegames, OR just installing game foo, with yum install kdegames-foo.
BUT, if having dones a yum install kdegames, Joe decides he doesn't
want foo, he does a yum remove kdegames-foo, and then yum of course
decides that it's necessary to remove kdegames.

What's the problem with that? Removing the kdegames base package won't result in the removal of all of the other subpackages. So Joe's left with the subset of games that he wants.

Paul.
