I maintain two packages for the fedora-medical SIG that fall under the
"freemedforms" project. At the moment, these are packaged separately:
1. freemedforms: provides freemedforms-emr and pulls in freediams
Now, freemedforms-emr and freediams are both built from the same source,
and use the same internal libraries. Currently, I first build
freemedforms-emr and the common libraries (spec) and then build
freediams (spec), pointing to these libraries.
Recently, with the 0.9.0-beta1 release, upstream sent me a new spec and
suggested I use one spec to build both freedmedforms and freediams, and
provide freediams as a subpackage.
I've built freemedforms already, and I'm in the process of updating
I think it's a good idea, since they'll always move hand in hand. The
build process will be simpler, and so will maintaining the package and
What do you folks think? Should I go ahead and retire(obsolete)
freediams and provide it as a subpackage in freemedforms? I don't see
any issues with this, but wanted to consult you folks to be sure before
I go ahead and make the changes.
