Hello there,
What is supposed to be the "normal" process to have PowerPC TW
to be in sync with TW ?

Do we have to monitor manually the 273 specific packages in (1)
and check with potential changes in (2) ?
Or is there some tools to warn of the differences ?


As somebody created actual packages in oS:F:PowerPC instead of
submitting fixes to the actual real package in oS:F (via devel), those
need to be monitored manually (hopefully the fixes did get submitted
and will come their way)

As soon as a package is created in :PowerPC, it is decoupled from oS:F
and no longer under the control of this project.

I'd go with verifying if the packages are links to oS:F and if they
are, if they contain any diff. Links without diff can simply be dropped
(they will be inherited from openSUSE:Factory again)

I wonder why we even allow this to happen.

A quick peek shows that a lot of these are just source links where "ppc"
is enabled.

This seems so that "ppc" 32bit is not built by default, just selected

This is annoying.
Those are bootstrap required for ppc64

we have to branch due to the fact it is not possible to disable/enable
particular arch on a link

We could easily go the s390x way of %disable_32bit 1 in prjconf for ppc64.
That should remove the requirement of -32bit packages (but also the
32bit GCC runtime then).


Except a broken/conflicted lilo there is no package diff at least.

24x links are just for ppc enablement.

Ciao, Marcus
