on irc we had a discussion about adding some logical namespaces.
It was started by looking for the right place for a php project.
we now agreed on having a "server:" namespace. the first proposed
projects in that namespace we see:
server:apache (the former Apache project)
server:mail (exim and home:choeger:postfix could be moved there)
server:php (php project, and php extensions, and my hardened php
server:dns (i will move my pdns, mydns, nsd packages there. maybe the
bind and dnsmasq package could move there aswell?:) )
Oh goody. I was about to add pdns to my project, but it looks like you saved
me the trouble :-)
It would be nice to have a server:voip aswell. peter
nixon has some
packages in that area iirc. :)
I am glad someone noticed! *grin*
I already created a project titled "telephony" a few weeks ago, but would be
happy to rename it to the server: namespace. (Clients are for wimps!)
I think that Telephony is probably a better name than VoIP, but I am willing
to go with consensus here...
On another note, how on earth do I add a project to "my projects"?? I dont see
anywhere to tick/click/bash...
I also don't appear to have permission to allow others to help out with my
The jpackage projects are moved into the Java:
Some people might ask: why dont you just move php into the apache
The answer is pretty short: Because it makes its impossible to build
newer php against older apache versions. with the new layout we can add
server:apache:<somedist> as build target to the php project aswell as
the plain suse distros. :)
So in long term i would suggest to join such logical project instead of
having multiple "mixed purpose projects". if you want to add a package
to such a project please contact the project owner on this list.
keep up the good work everyone
Speaking of namespaces, who do we have to kill to get
packages/projects/widgets sorted in alphabetical order? I have >20 packages
in my project and its getting hard to find the correct one at a glance. The
project situation is even worse, being spread out across multiple pages...
