Re: [opensuse-factory] splitting the update repo in oss/non-oss?

Am Montag, 25. Juni 2012 schrieb Ludwig Nussel:
Question is whether we should clean that up an have two update
repos. One for oss and one for non-oss. Advantage of two repos is
the clear separation of non-free components of course. You can't
accidentally build against non-free stuff then.

Did such an "accident" ever happen in practise for the update repo?
Or is this just a theoretical problem?

(I'd say the update repo is the repo with the best review and QA, so I
doubt such an "accident" will happen. Feel free to prove me wrong ;-)

Disadvantage might be that this would add two more repos to a
default installation (the non-oss update repo itself and a separate
debuginfo repo).

And another "update-non-oss-test" repo.

libzypp is quite fast, but having two more repos won't make it
faster ;-)

Any opinions on the matter?

I'm not the biggest fan of it ;-) - and I'm not sure if having some more
repos "just" to keep non-oss packages perfectly separated makes sense.
I mean, if you don't install non-oss programs, you won't get updates for
them, right? ;-)

Besides that, I agree with Bernhard that this change should wait for
12.3 MS1 - 12.2 already has enough things that need to be fixed ;-)

(Unrelated sidenote: I had lots of fun[tm] to get my laptop working
today - it seems systemd-journal sometimes likes to segfault which broke
various things, including X :-/ - bug 768953 covers the first part,
I'll have to do some research before I can report the bigger failures.
The very latest aaa_base (downloaded with osc getbinaries) seems to be
involved somehow, but that's all I can say for now.)
