dmitmel: Sure, it should work well.

Firstbober: Thanks, didn't consider that, I'll change that later (I don't have a access to my machine right now). Although I think that the version should instead look like major.minor_build to show that the build number isn't reset on each new minor/major version.

I think the version number should look like or something similar to mark the version of the game. For example

eschwartz: Thanks for your help very much!

Yes, you'll need to have the existing additional pkgname deleted (or merged, but there are no comments or votes to merge anyway) before you can push an update containing an additional pkgname in this .SRCINFO.

eschwartz: Yeah, I'm probably going to do that way. Also: if I make a split package with pkgbase=mindustry and which contains two packages mindustry and mindustry-server, should I ask for deletion of mindustry-server?

eschwartz commented on 2019-10-08 17:14

That would be my recommendation. :) Change this one to build from source, and add a pinned comment telling people where to find a precompiled binary package if they prefer.

eschwartz: So should I make a pinned comment about the split of this package into mindustry and mindustry-bin?

eschwartz commented on 2019-10-08 17:09

No, you're wrong. People who have installed this package already are expecting to install "the software", and are ambivalent about how it is created. People who go to download a package ending in -bin are explicitly saying "I consider using precompiled assets to be important".

Also there is already a notification system, it is called "the comments section". :)

eschwartz: because most people who have already installed this package are expecting a pre-compiled binary, I can't think of a way to add compilation here and notify users about migration to mindustry-bin.
