Dude! Thanks for the magic word "-devel"! I don't know why I didn't
think of that from the first. That was the missing piece, at least
for now ;-)
I'm thinking of these RPM's:
<foo>-<version>.src.rpm Raw CVS dump, w/o CVS subdirs
<foo>-devel-<version>.noarch.rpm Everything in CVS w/corrected paths
<foo>-<lang>-<version>.noarch.rpm XML, XSL, images and desktop files
The .src RPM is for archiving purposes, I guess.
The -devel RPM is for folk wishing to use the FDP infrastructure but
not using the CVS facilities. I'm not sure where the -devel files
should go, but maybe a "pkg-config" crutch would fix this.
The <lang> RPM would hold the XML infrastructure to allow desktop
tools like yelp to work.
Hmm... I'll think about this a bit more.
