Since month (June 2005), I stay in contact from time to time with Peter
Poeml, the Apache maintainer of SuSE.
I offered him my packages in June this year, and to my delight he was
very pleased and didn't hesitate to take them over and put them onto
SUSEs FTP server. Thanks him, my tidy and mod_tidy packages have found
their way to the official SUSE FTP servers. :-)
Since june, there hasn't changed anything to these packages, regarding
that I offer up-to-date packages (mod_tidy has significally changed
since June 2005, because of changes in licence and project owner) and
update them regulary.
These packages have greatfully found their way into SUSE 10, what I
appreciate a lot. But unfortunately, especially in the case of
mod_tidy, these packages still are in the state of June 2005. That's
sub-optimal, because from my point of view, there has been enough time
to bring these packages in sync with my latest ones.
I also already have offered my validator packages -- but still without
response, if these packages also will be taken officially by SUSE...
The W3C Validator developer team would appreciate this a lot...
Still, those packages would only be updated every 6
Much better option: community repository (your own, Packman, ...)
As you can follow my words, this already happened to me...
This should be changed in the future...
I will contact Packman.
So, have a
look into my packages, try them out. Any help for
improvements and advocacy is welcome.
Send in the spec files ;)
I don't have them separate in the moment (working on a Windows system).
I have published the Source RPMs, from there you might extract the Spec files.
Sorry for that little inconvenience..
