Re: [opensuse-buildservice] Colons considered harmful: escaping LD_LIBRARY_PATH in OBS projects

Brandon Philips napsal(a):
osc co openSUSE:Factory attr
cd openSUSE:Factory/attr
quilt setup attr.spec
cd attr-2.4.39/
strace getfattr/getfattr /

Here is a snip from that strace:

open("/home/philips/projects/openSUSE/x86_64/", O_RDONLY) = -1
ENOENT (No such file or directory)
Instead of taking on the pain of fixing ld and all of the tools and
scripts to generate and understand slash escaped colon characters we
could stop using colon as a separator in build service project names.

Another, rather cheap solution, would be an option in the osc client to
replace the colon with a dash or underscore or something (and let the
user decide what to do when there is a conflict). Because it's really
only in osc checkouts where the colon causes problems.
