because the aim of replace is different
I read it before, haven't seen anything that fit my needs. I had hope that this will do the trick anyway.
This being said, although I understand many people prefer wine staging and it's cool to share your work, I really don't think it is a good idea unless you manage to make your packages installable alongside the official solus wine packages without conflicting because when some user will mess up by installing both or whatever, I don't think you will be the one that will get headache trying to understand the problem and finding a way to solve it.
I know the intention is good but if many people start doing this, especially with packages that will likely conflict with packages that are in the official repository, it will become a chaos
Wait, wait, wait.
1) I know I am totally newbie but.... wouldn't the colliding just make all the work? You know, you've got Wine already installed, you try to install Wine-Staging and then there's prompt saying "You need to install: <dependencies>. Those packages are colliding and need to be removed: Wine (for example)". For me, it makes sense.
I was using Ubuntu before, never had problem juggling Wine versions: Wine(main repo)->Wine Staging(PPA)->Wine with Gallium Nine(PPA)->Wine Staging(PPA, same version as before).
2) I get your point on supporting the users, responsibility etc. but there's limit. I can't imagine you taking responsibility of third party repositories. Imagine Cannonical taking responsibility for all the PPAs, or Arch crew for AUR.... For me third party repos (I don't mean *that* tab in your SC
) were always "take caution, watch your step, we won't go with you by hand here".
Thanks for answer as always. Love when people aren't saying "just get the hell out of here, silly boy!". Making me want to know more!
