[opensuse-buildservice] How to name stable, development and edge packages?

Hi all,

we (as in, Andrew and myself for the Linux HA project) maintain
server:ha-clustering packages, in particular heartbeat.

Now, for that, Andrew maintains a stable build which we're actually
recommending to users, and I do a daily build in my home project, build
with some scripts from Andrew's because _link isn't powerful enough.

I'd like to make that more "official" and move it out of my playground.

Is there already a naming convention for that?

1) I could add them to server:ha-clustering as heartbeat-snapshot, plus
obsoletes/provides lines. I think that would be kind of ugly.

2) I could create a new project to build them, which wouldn't be quite
as ugly, but then - what to name it?

I like 2) best and would like to suggest we create a (CURRENT|DEVEL)
top-level distinction, because I don't think we're the only ones with
this issue. Then user's would automatically know where to go look for
the development snapshots.

What do you think?


Regards,
    Lars
