For two days...


- .debs are finished
- .rpms are finished
  Ugh... %-)
- All packages are on the wiki.
There are one .deb per architecture and one .rpm per distro+arch pair
due to different paths on all distros.

Frank, could you try .rpm for Fedora?

Observations and problems

- Fedora gives "..." in "Passwords" label
always under gnome3 fallback mode(?)
  Frank, do you see it? Is it important?

- all Fedora, Mageia and OpenSUSE uses different doc pathes
  On Fedora it is /usr/share/doc/<name>-<version>
  On Mageia       /usr/share/doc/<name>
  On OpenSUSE     /usr/share/doc/packages/<name>
  And as I understand rpm does not provide a way to alter this path
  during installation easily. This path is hardcoded into rpm during
  its creation.

  I attached .spec file. Despite its name it is suitable for both x86
  and x86_64.

  Should I put it on the wiki and make an instruction how to build rpm
  for other distributions? (Should I add automatic download of
  tarballs?) Or maybe should I provide explanation on differences
  between .rpms so user could choose right prebuit one? Is it
  important at all?

- my .spec file just repackages tarball from wiki
  i.e. it could not build rpm for other architectures

- Fedora uses i386 name for x86 while Mageia and OpenSUSE use i586
  My .spec uses it. So it may not work out of the box on some x86

- installation of any .rpm package from file through gui on OpenSUSE
pulls a lot of other packages including non-free (adobe flash)
  Also installation did not work for me due to lack of space (limited
  by ram per guest). With more space it did not work with error about
  not responded message on message bus. Looks very strange.
  Though `zypper install package.rpm` works well.

To do

- announce release on john-users
  I think it is ready. Frank, do you think so?
