Nice job. Thanks for doing this.

Hey @scellow,

I'm not sure what you mean by SDK path, Its installed to / so /usr/{bin,lib,include} have the files.

Ahh, in the tar it has a license file which gets copied out to /usr/share/licenses the empty folder should be removed, i'll fix that up.

It's not in /opt as /usr/ was already in $PATH, also i can't find anywhere in the binary tarball instructions that says put it in /opt? seems to just say unpack it somewhere in $PATH.

Thanks, but i have few questions

Where is the SDK path ?

/usr/share/swift is empty, is this normal ?

Why haven't you put everything in /opt/ like the doc suggest ?

@markzz done, thanks

You should skip the sha256sum check on the signature file.

I originally named the swift-language-git package since other packages are named swift* (swiften, swift-im), and I did not want any sort of ambiguity.

@rekoil, i guess because the name is a bit ambiguous though there's no package naming conflicts. OpenStack's swift comes to mind and then there is also the non related swift scripting lang and it seems an xmmp client. (there is also another package swift-language-git when i created this so i followed the naming convention)

Though i agree, i've renamed it to swift-bin and requested it be merged

Is there a reason we're not calling this package "Swift"? I mean we don't call python "python-language".
