We could have a structure something like this :
Primary key : name of package
Other fields, 1:1 relation :
- package rpm category (+ subcategory, if any)
Other fields, 1:N relation :
- Packager nickname + packager status (primary maintainer, trainee or
whatever) + real name + email
(The last 2 items could be in a separate table keyed by nickname.)
- Package dependancies (names of other packages)
- Package provides (names of other packages)
Any of above fields could be chosen as secondary keys.
This is just a quick suggestion, for the purposes of discussion.
It doesn't seem that this sort of info would be useful in
mageia-app-db, which is primarily for end-users.
another 2 cents :)
