Deji Akingunola has stepped forward to package mpich2 and I'm reviewing
Two questions have come up that aren't (afaict) covered by the Fedora
Extras packaging guidelines and we're looking for "authoritative"
1) What is official policy on conflicts between Extras and Core
packages? I have a vague memory that "no conflicts" is the
rule but I don't see it documented anywhere... [or maybe I
just need to look harder? ;-)]
2) What should one do in the case of packaging multiple MPI
implementations? The "interesting" problem with different
MPI implementations (eg. LAM/MPI, mpich, mpich2) is that
they all want to provide a set of binaries, headers, man
pages and libs that have similar (many identical) names.
So where does one put them? I like:
but thats just my opinion and more experienced packagers
may have a better idea...?
Any help/guidance is appreciated!
