I'm the maintainer of the wwt-svn package, the original name of the
program was "Wiimms WBFS Tools", later renamed to "Wiimms ISO Tools". I
didn't catch the rename fast enough and so Gordin created the wit-svn
On one hand I don't care either way which package remains, on the other
hand I'll maintain my PKGBUILD anyway, since I neet those tools in
a semi-professional way. (I "maintain" a Wii in a public place and the
WBFS stuff gives us the possibility to restrict access to the Wii
itself and the original media.)
The build-system is homegrown and needs quite a bit of handholding to
get a proper package.
From a glance at the two PKGBUILDs it seems, mine is a bit more up to
current standards, while Gordin's seems to "do" more, though I'm not
clear to what purpose.
