Notices for package maintainers
We are happy to see packaged Bottles but we ask you to respect some small rules:
The package must be
bottles, in other distributions it is possible to use suffixes (e.g.
bottles-giton Arch Linux for the git based package) while on others the RDNN format is required (e.g.
com.usebottles.bottleson elementary OS and Flathub repository). All other nomenclatures are discouraged.
In the current development phase, the version corresponds to the formula (
2.commit, e.g. 2.a005f01), where possible use this formula throughout the development phase. For stable and ‘stable development’ release you can use the version in the VERSION file and its release. Please don’t travel into the future with releases. It might confuse users.
Do not package external files and do not make changes to the code, no hard script. Obviously with the exception of files essential for packaging.
Once the package is published, you can open a Pull Request to add it to the packages table above! Thanks :heart:!
