Description Stephan Bergmann 2020-10-19 10:30:59 UTC
At least with texlive-imakeidx-svn42287-21.fc32.noarch, installing it does not care to also install texlive-splitindex.  But that LaTeX imakeidx package provides a splitindex option, and using that option apparently requires texlive-splitindex and its /usr/bin/splitindex, and can silently fail to generate indexes if the latter is missing.

For confusion caused by this, see the comments at <https://github.com/cplusplus/draft/commit/47fa06efaee7cbc41e23b2b99721b755439fb3f6> "[index] Use LaTeX package 'imakeidx' to allow for more indices."  (Which uses that imakeidx splitindex option at <https://github.com/cplusplus/draft/commit/47fa06efaee7cbc41e23b2b99721b755439fb3f6#diff-f996668df88a56f464ddc43a33b03b6da4ca6c4ca68bfcb3fcae7adc0f5bf0d6R27>).)

Would it make sense to add a corresponding Requires or at least Suggests?

Comment 1 Tom "spot" Callaway 2020-10-19 22:54:27 UTC
Recommends seems like the right balance (Suggests are ignored by dnf). I'm making this change in Fedora 33+, I'm reluctant to push an update for Fedora 32 just for this because of the high cost of doing a texlive update to a released target.
