After a series of broken packages because of _service files I would like to forbid them in openSUSE:Factory.
So far I've seen the use of _service files in factory as an experiment (I happily joined), but I see this experiment as failed.
What I would like to propose is: - ban recompress, download and tarscm as _services (everything else should have been banned before) - instead we verify the Source urls and make packages that have invalid URLs "broken", so you can't SR them to factory.
This means: the Source URL is now an important thing to change and no longer a bit rotting comment and we stop recompressing tars - this was a proposal from Adrian a while ago without much objection.
Please comment or I will go forward.
