Default Query about usb_modeswitch and how to handle its packaging

Hash: SHA1

Hi All,
I maintain usb-modeswitch in fedora. Recently upstream divided the main
tar ball into two parts, the code which builds into the usb_modeswitch
binary and the data part which contains the udev rules.

Initially there was just one tar ball with both, and my spec builds two
rpms out of that namely usb_modeswitch and usb_modeswitch-data.

Now upstream says that his intention of making two tar balls was to
enable updating the data part more frequently then the code, which makes

Now i have two options:

1. Have just one srpm, which builds from the two tar balls, if that is
done, the upstream purpose of updating the data more frequently is lost.
Also upstream says usb_modeswitch has to depend on usb_modeswitch-data
and vice versa.
2. Have two srpms one for data and one for binary, with both depending
on each other.

Which one do you think is the best option.
Thanks in advance.
