Dear Tumbleweed users and hackers,
After a few months of hard labor by many package maintainers, we reached the point where we could merge the change for %_libexecdir now.
Snapshot 0825 has just started building and will be the first snapshot to come out (or to be built - we'll see if it will be published) with that change enabled.
As this is a change also having impact on interactions between packages it was nescessary to trigger a rebuild of all packages. It's not realistically possible to identify the packages that would effectively be affected. So, besides the 'big change', you can expect also 'big download' for Snapshot 0825 (or the first snapshot to be published after that date).
Please be extra attentive to things no longer behaving as you expect. There is unfortunately a chance that some packages have hardcoded paths to files that moved around or also packages that hardcoded the install path even though things expect the helpers in different locations.
Should you come across one of your packages failing to build, it would be appreciated by all users of said package to receive a fix rather sooner than later.
Than kyou all for your great work on this topic. It once again showed that together, we can reach even such larger goals and doing so without rishing things.
