[maemo-developers] maemo-optify, autobuilder & /opt

I've put together a suggested spec for the decision, taken at the
summit during the /opt BOF[1], that the auto-builder would run some
maemo-optify version during the build process (controlled by a control
file header):


I suggest the header is XS-Maemo-Optify, and has the following values:

  none:   no optification should be done, or considered, by the autobuilder.
  manual: the application author will do optification manually. If the
          package contains no entries under /opt it would be considered a
          build failure.
  auto:   maemo-optify would be run if certain heuristics were met (e.g.
          no entries in /opt, no Python dependency)
  force:  maemo-optify would always be run

Marius: are you taking ownership of talking to Ed Bartosh, and anyone
else, about this plan?

Thanks in advance,
