NAME¶doc_decisions_vendor_spec_md - Vendor Spec
Issue¶Vendors (distributors, administrators) might want to modify the specification. gsettings has a similar feature.
Constraints¶There are many constraints in providing such a feature because it is possible to get a inconsistent or unusable specification.
Assumptions¶Developers who elektrify their applications do care about good integration and being administer friendly.
- implementing a new namespace that gets merged
- merge specification files during installation
Decision¶Provide means that a single specification can satisfy every distribution and administrator.
- Elektra wants to reduce fragmentation, and vendor specific changes obviously is a severe kind of fragmentation
- providing vendor overrides/fallbacks might be an excuse to not provide better typing or general overrides/fallbacks features which would avoid the need for a vendor overrides/fallbacks at all
Implications¶Provide means for a single specification to be very good integrated in every system.
