Reusing the same git module for different compat versions?

Does the FPC allow having a single 'compat-vala' Git module, that
would target the API level one lower than the one shipped in the main
vala package, for every supported Fedora release?


I'm ok with that

Thanks; in addition, my reviewer came up with an example of an
unversioned compat package (libwbxml-compat), so it looks like there's
also precedent for this.

Such unversioned "compat-packages" would implement "rolling
compatibility", i.e. would not provide "long-term compatibility with a
specific version to end-users", but would only provide a "'one fedora
release cycle' delay to Fedora packagers".


I do not see much sense in this and would prefer such packages to be
banned.

Well, you can probably find precedences for all kind of packaging
mistakes in Fedora ... ;)
