Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 174295
Package request: thunderbird-devel
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:18 EST
It would be very desirable for us to start packaging thunderbird-devel in
addition to thunderbird, since Thunderbird serves not only as a mail client but
also as a development platform for extensions. Being a native (XPCOM) extension
developer, I'd like to be able to provide an RPM with a dependency on
thunderbird-devel that'll build cleanly on a target user's machine. In the
current state, I can only build my extension against a RPM build directory of
Since package thunderbird already contains the libs, thunderbird-devel should
contain only the headers (akin Debian's thunderbird-dev). And yes, it should
contain all headers, not only the frozen ones, since extensions are targeted for
specific versions of Thunderbird anyway.
1. Do I get your principal agreement to my proposal?
2. Would you accept a patch to the spec that'll deliver this subpackage?
