The change appears to be complete, and everything seems ok with the scripted checks on the repo.

Before updating or adding extensions, perhaps it would be best to start with a fresh tce directory.  But I figure better to have updates and dependencies broken one big time than to make the changes gradually and break extensions and deps in existing tce directories many times.

Good work, and thanks for the clear communication of the change. This way I could simply perform a local rename of the "big" files and let rsync take care of the small ones (saved me at least 100 MBytes of downloads).

After re-syncing I've spotted a few more candidates for changing plural to singular:
Code: [Select]
$ grep -E '(dev|lib|doc|locale)s\.tcz(l|lm|m|ml|)$' info.lst
gcc_libs.tczl
glibc_add_libs.tcz
gnome-mime-data-2.18.0_devs.tcz
ncurses-extralibs.tczl

I also did a check of multiple "flavors" for a given extension:
Code: [Select]
$ sed 's/\.tcz.*//' info.lst | uniq -d
git
pysqlite2
It looks to me that we might have kept some out-dated versions in the repository.

You miss nothing.  Thanks for your audit. 

I renamed the gnome-mime-data extension. 

The git and pysqlite tczl extensions were leftovers from previous upgrades, now fixed.

The glibc, gcc are not going to change before next major TC version change, so ok to leave for now.

Ncurses-extralibs has been renamed to ncurses-lib and dep files adjusted.

One teeny-weeny adjustment might still be required: zenmap.tczl.dep contains 'pysqlite2.tczl', whilst we now have got only 'pysqlite2.tcz'

..and I'd only used "-devs" to keep in line with Jason  ;)

Yeah, I realize I was probably the main reason folks were using -devs instead of -dev as looking back in early TC and another distro most others used -dev.  :)
