May I ask what's the policy in case of earlier submitted, but working packages ?
Is it needed to modify according to this new feature immediately if
otherwise the packages work well and no requirement until now from the
users for splitting
Is it enough to modify according to this feature only that time if I
need to change the PKGBUILDs because of other reason(s) too ?
