Hi,
one question....as zyGrib was already free software, why was it forked instead of contribution? Does not sound that there was a major disagreement with the developer of zyGrib....

and the wish: can you pls stick to the standard name-version scheme (XyGrib-1.0.0) instead of name-Vversion-some_more_stuff ? Makes live easier for automated building...

Thanks!

Hello,

1. zygrib.org started around 2002 and was developped by a single person. He never set up a collaborative environment, which make collaboration a bit complicated.
zygrib belongs to him and he wants to keep it (which seems quite reasonable). So a fork is the way to move on.

2. XyGrib just starts. First release could have a name like XyGrib-0.x.y, but as it starts directly from zyGrib-8.0.1, the version is rather stable. But in the future, names will certainly follow the rules.
Bonne journée ou bonne soirée (vous pouvez choisir)
Have a nice day or good night (you can choose)
Guten Morgen oder gute Nacht (Sie können wählen)

I have tweaked the names a bit and got it building on openSUSE: build.opensuse.org/package/show/home:DocB/XyGrib
Not yet tested, but will do soon.
Just FYI: build.opensuse.org can build for Debian, Ubuntu, etc as well, from the single source. May be a consideration to ease life...
