Packages for VL 5.8 SOHO
« on: January 29, 2007, 04:05:39 pm »

About the packages that are build for SOHO only, what should the release number look like?


Or should _soho be appended to the package name?

I split your post to start a new topic. Given that there is going to be a separate SOHO repository and given that the base development tools and libraries for both SOHO and Standard are the same, I don't see any logical reason to go to vl58_soho for the build for soho packages. That's just my opinion, though.

VL 6.0 SOHO latest alpha on one box, VL 5.9 Lite on the other.

I agree, they will also probably work on Standard with kdelibs (or maybe a bit more of KDE). We just need to state clearly what was uploaded to vectorcontrib and for which repo.
