Update to minetest 5.3.0 and split data package

I maintain a copr build with some changes in the minetest packages and since minetest 5.3.0 has been released, it's maybe a good idea to propose those changes for the Fedora package.

So, here is my proposal: on it's own, the current minetest-server package is not functional because it lacks some data. It works only if you install it alongside the main minetest package.
So, I propose to extract the common data out of the main package and release it as a separate package that both minetest and minetest-server depends on.
I've also split out the minetest-game data as a new optional package as that one is not mandatory (you can install other minetest games mod). I've kept the current way of building with merged sources, but probably minetest-game could be build it's own, from another srpm.

Comment 2 Aleksandra Fedorova 2020-07-14 14:01:40 UTC
Thanks for the contribution,  Olivier Samyn

As Minetest community keeps releasing the engine and the -game with the same version number, I'd prefer having one source rpm for them. Because it is only one update you need to do on each new release.

But splitting data from the mintest subpackage definitely makes sense. I'll try to apply your patch this week.

Let me know also if you'd like to have a co-maintainer rights for the package.

Comment 3 Olivier Samyn 2020-07-17 07:43:57 UTC
Keeping the game data in the same source srpm makes sense also, as it's the way of working of the upstream project. That's why I changed the spec to use the same version tag to refer to both archives.

As I revived my minetest server, and I expect to also work a bit on some input problems, I'll definitely be glad to help maintaining that package. I'm not part of the packages maintainers, but would be happy of some sponsor.

Comment 4 Aleksandra Fedorova 2020-07-26 20:42:54 UTC
I've create a PR today

But the build fails on aarch64 architecture with

Comment 5 Olivier Samyn 2020-07-27 22:04:06 UTC
Unfortunately I did not activated aarch64 on my copr, I suppose I would have found that error. 

If you need help I can try to debug that in the coming days.

Comment 6 Fedora Update System 2020-07-30 09:04:36 UTC
FEDORA-2020-66d7371d23 has been submitted as an update to Fedora 32.

Comment 7 Aleksandra Fedorova 2020-07-30 10:40:49 UTC
It seems that aarch64 failure is connected to the LTO issues in current rawhide. Disabling LTO fixes the build.

Thus I have pushed a disable-LTO patch for master Rawhide, while pushed just the regular 5.3.0 update to F32.

Please take a look at the update and set karma.

And thanks again for the patch, Olivier!
