Hi. I have a question about "branching package from another project"
feature. I wonder how i should work out the following scenario:
I branched a package "sonic-visualiser" [1]  from "multimedia:apps" project

openSUSE_11.4 i had to branch newer versions of "raptor" and "redland"
packages from project "X11:common:Factory" into my branch of
"multimedia:apps" project (it become

So now can i submit these newer "raptor" and "redland" packages to
"multimedia:apps" project?

In general you can create submit requests from any source to any target.
If you are not the the source owner, it will be reviewed by them.

However, in such cases it may make sense to talk with the target owner.
He might to solve it differently, like creating a link for that package and
just enable build for the old distros. So that he knows that he can remove it
later on.

Can i somehow create a link myself, and submit this to the project, so
that i will be sure this works, and help project maintainers to detect
problems early?

I wonder if it is aginst some project policies, or just does not work
this way...
