Re: [PATCH]: mknetrel builds Guile #4: genscript

What about picking a directory for extra right now, let's say:
and have individual packages all unpack their extra script there
(maybe even junk most extra's from mknetrel-cvs itself)?
Not yet. Since all of the scripts current in /extra/ are for cgf's
packages, AND cgf will probably be the maintainer of the evenutal
mknetrel package itself (he owns the CVS repo for it, after all <g>)
then there's no real problem for HIS /extra/ scripts to continue living
within the mknetrel package.
If he wants to move them over to gcc-*-src.tar.bz2 somewhere down the
line, and have them unpack into /usr/src/mknetrel/extra or whatever,
that's his decision -- and it won't really affect the rest of us.
Wouldn't /usr/src/mknetrel be more suitable? That's where most
packaging systems go...
Any volunteers for packaging mknetrel?
Not really. What if you download the mknetrel source ITSELF? Where do
you think THAT would go? [*I* think this is the reason Red Hat uses
/usr/src/redhat/ for RPM building, and Mandrake uses /usr/src/RPM (all
caps)...that way, /usr/src/rpm/ could be where the rpm source itself lives)
