Just my two cents here - in several cases I noticed that some packages
were provided with unversioned tarballs, likely altered, with no
explanation of their origin nor any kind of changelog update in
* such things do not create much trust in packages provided by packman
* at least some of openSUSE packaging guidelines should be followed ...
My overall goal with packman, at least for Essential project would be
to have only things that are not suitable for openSUSE there,
everything else should be in main distributions (Tumbleweed and via
maintenace updates in Leap) - and achieving this is actually not so
