Description Rex Dieter 2005-06-30 09:58:32 EDT
IMO, the extra complexity (packaging, and for end-user experience) of packaging
the -arts and -akode output plugins separately is not worth it.

I can *maybe* understand -akode, since it adds a dependancy on kdemultimedia,
but arts will always be installed, so I don't understand any benefit to
packaging it separately (unless you're using that as a way to discourage its use
in favor of -gstreamer).

No biggie, but at least consider it.

I agree, it's a total pain, and confusing to boot.
Comment 2 Aurelien Bompard 2005-07-01 08:42:33 EDT
Yeah, I guess it just makes it harder for the end user. I was following the
guidelines at http://amarok.kde.org/wiki/index.php/Packaging_amaroK
In the next version, I'll keep only -akode (and -xine of course).
Comment 3 Rex Dieter 2005-07-01 09:23:16 EDT
You probably ought to keep -visualization as well.   I can see some folks not
wanting xmms (and gtk+) to get pulled in.
Comment 4 Aurelien Bompard 2005-07-01 09:52:16 EDT
Yes, that's what I actually did in CVS. -arts was the only deleted supackage in
then end.
