<div dir="ltr"><div><div><div>Hello,<br></div>I am trying to package
STLPlus (<a href="http://sourceforge.net/projects/stlplus/files/stlplus3/"
target="_blank">sourceforge.net/projects/<wbr>stlplus/files/stlplus3/</a>)
library for fedora. There are few doubts I have in mind regarding
packaging it.<br><br></div>1. The library is dependent on another
project viz. 'makefiles' (<a
href="http://sourceforge.net/projects/stlplus/files/makefiles/"
target="_blank">http://sourceforge.net/<wbr>projects/stlplus/files/<wbr>makefiles/</a>).
 This project is also distributed in a separate tar ball. This project
only contains few helper files that are included by the
STLPlus library's makefile (Hence, STLPlus requires this package for
build only). Other projects can also make use of this project to write
their makefiles quickly. I think makefiles project is more generic and
not quite specific to STLPlus, hence must be packaged separately. Is it
right to package it separately ? Though I understand that 'makefiles'
name is too general and should be renamed to something else may be
?<br><br></div>2.
 Re. Location of 'makefiles' project : Since, it only contains few
helper files, I am wondering what would be the best location for
installing these files ? datadir ? libdir ?<br clear="all"><br>--
