Re: doubt regarding package name

Having subpackages that do not have the SRPM name as a prefix is terrible on tools adn scripts and should be avoided.

Why not lzma-sdk-java   lzma-sdk-sharp  etc.?

I'd use lzma-sdk for the source rpm, and lzma-java for the Java package 
created out of it (no main package).  And if the C# bits are later packaged 
out of it as well, use lzma-sharp for that.
