My name is Igor. I'm long-time contributor in Fedora and started
recently to contribute to the openSUSE with focus on cross-distro
collaboration. I'm also contributor to many upstream projects which
You can see my oSC19 talk here:
There are still few things which are different between Fedora and
openSUSE spec files for rust packages, more specifically those are
license header, Group tag and changelog. While license header and
changelog things are not easy to fix, the Group one is.
In Fedora, we have removed all Group tags in F30:
Groups are hard to choose (I would rather prefer to see some kind of
tags), there is no check from RPM itself (it is basically free-form
text field) and usually you can't put application into one group
because they belong to multiple groups.
I spoke to a few people on the oSC and it seems that only YaST is
using this information to generate UI. So it should be doable to
change its representation which is not based on the Group tag.
Considering above, is there some process like Fedora Changes
) in openSUSE where I
can propose this?
We are already in process of abandoning it. See the thread 'Killing
Group tag in .spec files' on this ML.
In short I think we removed it now everywhere except the packagehub
website . @ismail could you give up some feedback if you guys are
still relying on this?
When that gets solved we can kill it right away.
