It looks like openSUSE currently ships fam. However, it looks like
KDE at least says gaming is better than fam, at the very least because
gaming doesn't require a system-wide daemon while fam does. Is there
another overriding reason why fam is used instead of gaming?

IIRC, gamin doesn't support file monitoring over NFS, while fam does.
And that's why we have fam and not gamin.


That sounds like a valid reason. Would it be acceptable to also offer
gamin since not everyone uses NFS?

Sure, just submit it :-)


You can easily check it by installing it in 12.1, no configuration needed, and
give as root "rcfam start". I made a bug report

I checked the versions. In 11.4 it is fam-2.7.0-146.1 and in 12.1 it is
fam-2.7.0-154.1. It looks like a regression, because the same bug was reported
a few years ago.
