Woof generic PETs

November 26, 2010 — BarryK
A little note for those who use Woof. I have been putting the "generic" PETs, such as Pburn, Pmusic, Grub4dos, into pet_packages-quirky directory in the repository. These PETs are to be used in all Woof-built puppies, so it is not really appropriate that they should be in the quirky repo directory -- however it works as the file DISTRO_PET_REPOS has a variable PACKAGELISTS_PET_ORDER which specifies to look in the Quirky repo first.

Anyway, I do intend to make this more logical. I will move all the "generic" PETs into a directory pet_packages-generic and modify the PET search order to look there first.

Then, if the latest "generic" PETs are kept there, they will be found and used, and not some older version in another repo.

This is on the to-do list.
