- The isql tool should be probably renamed to something like
fb-isql to remove conflict with ODBC packages. This is trivial, I just didn't do it yet because Firebird's isql is the only isql I need. :-)
that's not the only name conflict in Fedora and Mageia isql is rename to isql-fb and gstat to gstat-fb
and yes I really prefer isql-fb than fb-isql it is easier for completion
No problem with that, it will be certainly better to use the same name across distributions.
and what about superclassic ?
It is part of firebird-classic subpackage - one can either start Classic via (x)inetd or SuperClassic via /etc/init.d/firebird. Do you think it should be taken out into a separate subpackage?
for example do you take care that a lot of files are linked with libfbembed or client, depending upon server version ?
Yes. These are in different version in firebird-superserver and firebird-classic subpackages but I may have overlooked something.
and what about systemd support ?
I'm not that familiar with systemd (actually, the most important piece of information about systemd for me is how to get rid of it). But all the time the systemd enthusiasts claim that if you don't want to use special systemd features, you can simply use normal init scripts even with systemd.
