This package is a mutually exclusive alternative to the darktable package. The build scripts are hard-coded with the name "darktable" for the binary and library directories. To quote from the developer's build instructions:

R&Darktable uses the same scripts and building stack as upstream darktable, so everything works the same but you need to be aware that it will get installed in place of darktable and as darktable, so it uses the same pathes and default config/database directories. The CLI commands are all the same and R&Darktable will be registered as darktable as far as your OS is concerned.

I'm not sure at this point if it's worth it or even desirable to have it installed somewhere else and using different config pathes and CLI commands.

So, it we want to package this as a separate package, some downstream patches would be required. Since this is really just an interim fork until vkdt becomes more mature, it is probably not worth the effort.

I made this package so that I could easily use this as the main darktable package for my system that could easily be updated. If I want to see what is happening with the main darktable project, then I build that separately under a different directory tree. Therefore, I recommend you make a decision as to whether you want to use darktable or rdarktable as your official package, and just install the appropriate one, and if you want to explore the other variant, then build it somewhere under your home directory as you normally would for a development build.

Should the package name be r-darktable to match the GitHub Repo name?
