Hi Vincent,

Other related questions to game packaging:
1) Currently I'm packaging a game (let's call it "thegame") that
only has one thegame.tar.gz archive, containing the source files
and data files. I've written a shell script that splits that file
into two separate thegame.tar.bz2 files and thegame-data.tar.bz2. I
included the shell script in the package sources for convenience. I
assume that it's a common practice. Can you confirm this ?

2) When splitting the package, should I create one single package
in OBS containing both spec files (thegame.spec and
thegame-data.spec), or rather use two separate OBS packages
"thegame" and
"thegame-data", each one with a single spec file ?

You don't must split the tar.bz2 into 2 or more different tars. You
can use one Source and can split the Package into different Packages.
As Example i've attached an Spec.

HTH Sascha
Excuse me i have it misunderstood. As the Conventionsite says, it is
better to make two tarballs ...
Sincerely yours
