Isn't there a "v" missing here?

Hey, Peter, for one who consistently complains about lack of consistency in
naming, you completely diregarded the precedent that has previously been set
for naming RPM releases (regardless of the source).

And then you neglected to put group write permissions on the directory so that
other binaries could be uploaded.

So now I wouldn't be able to upload RPMs in the customary place. Many thanks.

These are SuSE RPMs. They were build by SuSE following the conventions
that SuSE has used for their past releases. So who are we to argue with
that?
And then you neglected to put group write permissions on the directory so that
other binaries could be uploaded.
I see

drwxrwxr-x 3 petere pgsql 512 Nov 17 20:47 binary/v7.4/

If someone else put the group write permissions in there in between, I
apologize.
So now I wouldn't be able to upload RPMs in the customary place. Many thanks.


What is the customary place? I'm confused.

The place they were put. The 'customary place' has been
v{version}/RPMS/{distribution} so that they would be in
pub/binary/v7.4/RPMS/suse-{version}. Their source RPM would go there
too. I have no problem with the name of the RPM's themselves, just
where they were put. As long as they don't have a PGDG in the release
tag I'm happy with the package names.


Actually, ummm ... what if I were to upload FreeBSD binaries? I think:

/pub/binary/v7.4/{suse|redhat|freebsd|solaris} makes more sense, no?

the RPMS at the top directory made sense when it was only RPMS that were
being provided, but ...
