I have updated SWF Tools to use libraries, but is there a consensus or place to record names that modules have assumed for a library?
SWF Tools relies on a lot of support libraries for the various players, so as far as possible I tried to use the "root" name of the tar or zip when it is unpacked to make it nice and easy for the end user. There are a couple of exceptions where I have to support multiple versions of a player that might have the same name.
It occurred to me that other modules implementing, for example, the JW Player, might want to know the name I assumed (if I am the first to assign one!) so they can use the same library, and equally if someone already found a home for a library then I can just use that rather me creating a new copy of a library.
Is there some value in a docs page, perhaps organised as a simple list of library "readable" names, and the corresponding library name that the first implementing module assumed?
I'd be happy to kick start a docs page with my SWF Tools list if this is "a good thing to do"
In general terms, libraries works nicely with SWF Tools and solves a support request I had for users wanting to maintain different library versions on different sites!
