[opensuse-packaging] Re: [opensuse-factory] heads-up: dropping SLE11 compatibility in d:l:python and python3
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----

hello,

Dne 23.2.2015 v 16:06 Benjamin Denisart napsal(a):
Personally, I just would like to say I disagree with that decision. It
doesn't require any extra work from us, why disabling SLE11 support ?

on the vast majority of packages, the only "extra work" is the conditional
definition of "BuildArch: noarch" and the %python_sitelib/sitearch macros.
This seems minor, but there is also no good reason to keep doing it.

On some more complicated packages, however, there is significant work in
keeping things like lists of requirements and %pre/%post scriptlets up to date
and working. It's this kind of work that we want to get rid of -- ideally
everywhere, not just for python. Dropping SLE11 is a step in that direction.

Again, feel free to continue supporting SLE11 if you feel that it's worth the
effort, just please let us know that you're doing it deliberately and not only
because "it's something that we always did".

regards
m.
