It's just that I'm questioning whether jdd
really wants to learn.
this is just not fair. You can ask if you want, but do not
make assumptions like this.
probably you didn't follow the thread on the other list,
sorry, there are so many opensuse lists it's often difficult
to know what to do.
my goals are many.
First, I don't want to be a packager for big applications.
second, I use to be a writer aimed to beginners. not only
beginner in Linux or openSUSE, it can be beginners on
I know it's nearly impossible for an oldtimer to remember
what was so difficult when he was young :-). We must also
know that things change and than newbies from ten years ago
and newbies from today are nor the same.
So as I said, I want to be able to make _simple_ packages
for _simple_ applications. For this I'm ready to learn, but
not to spend months becomming a specialist.
I know what I can do (don't think I'm over confident, I'm
used to this kind of work) and what I can't. I think I have
also a sufficient knowledge to understand and follow most
clear instructions. When I can't, I immediately suspect the
documentation is not that good. Not that good for beginners,
of course, most docs are aimed to already used people.
however, if you want to have help, to have non-programmers
become packagers (and this seems a highly desirable thing),
you must have the doc I seek for.
so I will make a report of what I discover and how to be
used by others and I think this report will probably be more
important than the few packages I will be able to build.
and to go back to the subject, how can one better understand
how to make a spec file than to look at a simple one?
