I was wondering is there a process for centralizing or avoiding package
I was looking for netbeans 6.7 and found several user versions. I was
wondering if there was
a custom specification for these or could a product like this be
maintained in a "this is the openSUSE version"
manor. The Education project has version 6.5 and I am sure we would like
to use the already compile 6.7 from one of the users
like "gerritbeine" . Lars is a very busy guy and I would bet he would
like this package too.
Well, the idea of the non-home projects is that packages are maintained
there and when somebody wants the new version or get something fixed
fast, he link this package to his home, do whatever he wants and then
send submitrequest back to the original project where maintainer reviews
it and updates the original package accordingly (if it is a good thing).
We want to motivate people to do so, but we can't force them. You can
ask user which has this package in his home to propagate it further...
