One of my packages, imagination, relies on sox for audio support. Of
course this is provided by Fedora with MP3 disabled and can not be
duplicated in RPM Fusion.
I remember a review request that used a binary diff to add whatever
was not allowed in Fedora, and although it seems a rather messy way to
do things, I'd be willing to maintain it if there were sufficient
Isn't sox modular enought to allow plugins ?
It might be an option for the fedora package.
We have a policy not to replace any package, and a 'binary diff" ends
to suggest that.
The common workaround is to use an "alternative" name for the binary
and to use a symlink. That change would need to be backed by both
fedora and RPM Fusion packages.
But I think there is a better way for sox.
