- I created the packages from scratch so they might need some tweaking
to allow clean upgrade from current 2.1 packages. I didn't check this yet.
- 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
- The "isqlalign" patch (fixes column alignment in isql with UTF-8) is
a bit of "ugly hack" and is inconsistent with the rest of Firebird as it is based on locales and standard C++ library rather than ICU. It might be better to backport the fix from 3.0.
I'm ready to resolve these (and possibly other) issues if it helps to get Firebird 2.5 into Factory.
and what about superclassic ? and yes I suspect more issues perhaps for example do you take care that a lot of files are linked with libfbembed or client, depending upon server version ?
and what about systemd support ?
