during work on fix for apache2-mod_jk I found that even if the Apache:Modules/apache2-mod_jk is marked as devel project, it contains completely different package with newest version and a different history, which makes it as devel project unusable. So I converted it to source link and submit a fix again.
Anyway I used an attached Python script to find all packages not have the _link in a filelist - their maintainers would consider to fix it. I also attached a list of affected packages.
BTW: is there any simple way how to convert the package to source link? I used the sequence
osc linkpac openSUSE:Factory $PACKAGE $PROJECT osc rremove $PROJECT $PACKAGE `osc ls $PROJECT $PACKAGE | grep -v _link`
but it messed the commit log, because every one deletion is one commit.
Well, luckily you didn't catch devel:gcc/gdb. And of course a setup this way may be completely on purpose! It definitely is for gdb.
