Re: [GSoC] Check architectures

Hello Andreas,

I do not think that there is any sense in having separate metapackages

there is no way to install any package


in parallel.  So for every single architecture we need to create
metapackages featuring the packages for this architecture plus those
packages that are architecture = all which I expressed in my original
examle query in sql/blendsd_change_dependency by

  ...  architecture in ('$3', 'all' ))  ...

and which in your python code properly was turned into

  ...  architecture in ('{2}', 'all' )) ...

Thanks I got the idea.

There is no point at all to turn this into

  architecture in ('all', 'all' ))

because there is no practical relevance for such a metapackage.

For example these are the key sentences that explain the reason of the change, thanks, I will try to use more proper wording(like you did here) when I describe something because I may lead to misunderstandings and wrong meanings.

Kind regards
