Just an observation that maybe needs clarification to pmbs users, a
mention on the openSUSE forum of the following package tweaked my
interest, so went to check it out;


Why has the pristine tarball been changed, it should be as downloaded,

No updated changes file?

No peer review, AFAIK, package updates should be branched into the
users home project, updated and submitted, not directly committed.

I see no reason for this package not to be built on OBS to help reduce
build load.
