I've started a page for updating the packaging guidelines.
At the moment it's a straight copy of the packaging guidelines except
that I've updated 'ocaml-foolib.spec' from my private copy of that
- how useful is the whole '%opt' stuff now that we have native
compilation on every Fedora architecture?
- use of chrpath and strip
- should we finally distribute ocaml-find-requires/provides with
upstream RPM? They haven't changed in a long time.
- note about some common rpmlint errors:
- ISO-8859-1 - should we ban it from *.ml & *.mli files?
- camlp4/camlp5 syntax extensions are a bit different from a
distribution point of view. They usually don't need a -devel
package, and they require *.cmo files to be distributed.
And sometimes they should be noarch.
