I've been thinking a bit about a scummvm-tools fedora package. The
reason why I haven't made one two or three releases ago is the name of
the 'extract' tool. Specifically, I feel it wouldn't be right to put a
binary with a generic name like 'extract' in /usr/bin.
A couple of possible solutions:
* don't create a scummvm-tools package.
* just put everything in /usr/bin regardless.
* don't put the binaries in /usr/bin but somewhere outside of the
default path. (If so, where? It might have to be mentioned in the docs
* rename the binaries in the package. I really don't want to do this
because it would be confusing to have tools named differently on
* rename the extract tool itself.
Regardless of which solution is chosen, I'd like to suggest renaming
'extract' anyway, since it doesn't seem to actually extract anything,
but rather compress the monster.sou files. I can't really think of a
good name off-hand, though. Maybe 'compress_sou' after the current
A final, hopefully easier question:
Which tools should be packaged? I'm guessing the 'convbdf' and
'md5table' tools are for internal use only and wouldn't be useful to
have in a scummvm-tools rpm. What about the others?
Opinions/suggestions are welcome :-)
