lua not packaged according to guildelines(no -devel, contains .a .la files)
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:34 EST
lua is not packaged according to guildelines:
-lua really should have a seperate -devel package for the .h files, the
liblua.so symlink and the .pc file
-the .la file should not be shipped.
-the .a file also should preferably not be shipped.
I just saw your lua split mail to FE was that before or after the creation of
this bug? (Doesn't matter just curious if I hit a human interaction race condition).
According to the timestamps of the emails, I announced the split before the bug
The devel split has been discussed in another bug thread also. Hence the email
There is a bug in the split, the main lua package still Provides: lua-devel
causing the building of package which BR lua-devel to fail as they only get lua.
Let me know if you want this in a new bug.
Fixed.. building now. Thanks for spotting that.
I didn't spot it though, I tripped over it while building a lua-devel Requiring
Don't forget to close this bug again once the build is completed (I reopened it
I didn't know you were going to be that quick).
