Should the 'mlrepo' suffix still be used with CR packages?

Great idea! :clap:
I think it's not really necessary to be alphabetical. After all, debian isn't. Besides I'd like a little more separation from ubuntu.


Okay... so... how does this sound.

Mepis 11: Clarkson
Mepis 11.5: Hammond
Mepis 12: May
Mepis 12.5: Pizzati
Mepis 13: Jacobson
Mepis 13.5: Page

(no, I'm NOT sorry!)

Sounds like a good idea. I have to keep close track of packages that have the same source tarball in the 8.0 and 8.5 repository, and it's easy to mix them up when the only difference between them is a "mlrepo1" and "mlrepo2".

It would also be nice if the new 11.0 release had an official name, much as Debian has Squeeze and Ubuntu has Maverick. I know Warren mentioned this; I would propose picking from a list of ancient Egyptian localities, such as Thebes, Karnak, and so on. There seems to be enough to create a list that could be in alphabetical order, too:

https://secure.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/ ... e_Delta.29

Then a line in the changelog would read something like

foo (0.2.3-0~mcr110+1) karnak; urgency=low

Karnak the Magnificent. Hmmm--I do hope 11.0 is worthy of that name.

Having both version and also name seems like overkill (doubling up). My vote would be ~mcr110-1, ~mcr110-2, ~mcr110-3 etc. I still like the straight 'mepis' designation rather than changing it with another name for each release. Why complicate it ... when we don't have to? Anyone will be able to see from the suffix what version it's compiled for. It also means we won't have to change existing structure for the CR or for changing the apt-preferences.

Agree. Names other than MEPIS and version just add confusion. I still cannot keep track of the different Ubuntu release names.

Post Re: Should the 'mlrepo' suffix still be used with CR package
I think that we need to do something like the older mlrepo version:

wicd (1.7.0+ds1-5mcr110) mepis; urgency=low

or add a plus sign:

wicd (1.7.0+ds1-5+mcr110) mepis; urgency=low

The squiggle (~) will make a Mepis version lower than the Squeeze version of wicd I patched, for example, and bumping the -5 to -6 is not really Debian kosher.

wicd (1.7.0+ds1-5~mcr110) mepis; urgency=low

Also adding another (-1) to the end of the package causes no end of trouble when attaching a source tarball, i.e.

wicd (1.7.0+ds1-5mcr110-1) mepis; urgency=low

is a no-go--we can have just one -dash in the version number, and it tries to find a mcr110 source tarball, can't, and errors out.

Edit: now I'm thinking combining the backports and the older mlrepo method would be best:

First backport version:

wicd (1.7.0+ds1-5mcr110+1) mepis; urgency=low

and the second version to fix some problem:

wicd (1.7.0+ds1-5mcr110+2) mepis; urgency=low

we need some divider between the "110" and the repo revision number, and the dash won't work.

After some testing & consideration I think you're right, Stevo
foo (1.2.0-1mcr110+1) mepis; urgency=low
it is.

OK with me - we'll need to update the wiki accordingly.

Wiki is updated to reflect the new naming policy.

Are we ready to give Warren the repo info for inclusion (as he promised)?
