Questions for new package: Freepascal



Hi all,

I'm willing to try to add Freepascal (www.freepascal.org). That's a
pascal compiler, which is written in pascal - to compile it you need a
binary version of the compiler already.

So you always have to provide a binary executable, with which the
compiler could be build.

I'm don't know what your policies are around such things. (Are there
any?)

I could include the compiler-binaries in a second 'source-file' into the
RPM. That should work. But I dont know if you guys would appreciate
that.

Any thoughts on this?

Second - simple question: The compiler is GPL-2, the libraries (rtl,fcl)
are modified LGPL. Can i put them into one RPM? Or should that be two
RPM's? (If you download the source from www.freepascal.org, it's in one
tar-file)

Joost van der Sluis.
