I'm about to submit 6 new small packages: libevt, libevtx, libregf,
libmsiecf, liblnk, libvshadow.
My basic question is what devel project I should send these to and if
I should leave them as 6 discrete projects, or maybe try to combine
I've thought about just pushing all 6 to devel:libraries If that is
a good choice let me know.
All of them are from the same upstream author and have the same
structure, all hosted at the same place etc.
The specfiles are all very similar. For each one there is a c library
created, a python bindings sub-package and a end-user tools
sub-package (eg. evttools, etc.) with a couple simple tools each.
My use case is a security tool that uses the python bindings of all 6,
so in theory I could put them there, but it seems like the wrong place
to me, but the "tools" sub-projects would all actually qualify as
security tools for a forensic examiner. (I already have 15 or 20
forensic tools in the security project, so maybe it is time for me to
create a security:dfir sub-project and just put everything in there?)
I would not create an another sub-devel-project if there are not
stronger reason that I have no idea where to put my package. Please note
that devel projects does not make any sense for most of of packages we
have in openSUSE, therefor feel free to submit them into security, or
utilities or devel:openSUSE:Factory, or whatever reasonable existing
project you will find.
