I see that in https://github.com/AmigaPorts/SDL-2.0 you have now modified things so that a build will generate SDL3 names. Are you sure this is the best approach and will not cause confusion? Why not create https://github.com/AmigaPorts/SDL-3.0 ?

Many things to comes wrt. porting will still use SDL2, it means that people will have to clone your branch and checkout a previous commit ID to get the latest and greatest SDL2 libraries.

I just thought I would raise this now.

Thanks for all your work and all those involved in making SDL possible for Amiga in the first place!




Actually, I notice that the change to SDL3 names happened in:
commit 25239ae8c89da2412032722a4c0e2418af9c289c

    Merge branch 
'main' of https://github.com/libsdl-org/SDL into libsdl-org-main

This means that you (@capehill) did nothing more than merge in their changes. I am surprised they are not creating a separate branch though. I guess there is a reason!




Woah, I am really confusing myself.

I think SDL2 is specifically on your branch: "SDL2". "main" is just SDL3 since December last year.

Understood, thanks.

Just to add that SDL2 is a dev branch (SDL 2.29) and there are separate release branches so you probably want to use 2.28 branch. This is similar to upstream.

Ideally repo name would be just SDL like in upstream but there is an obsolete repository with the same name already under AmigaPorts, based on the unofficial mirror from times when upstream used their own Mercurial repo.
