Description Patrice Dumas 2006-08-22 07:45:43 EDT
Description of problem:

the a2ps package contains a library and an include file, it should
better be in a -devel package. 

The .la file is uneeded, it should be removed, as per the 
packaging guidelines.

having ogonkify included in a2ps is bad, since it is the 
same than ogonkify upstream with configure.in added, but
it may not be worth the trouble to remove it, since the
2 projects seem to work together.

Maybe it is the right time to move
/usr/include/liba2ps.h
/usr/lib/liba2ps.a

and remove
/usr/lib/liba2ps.la

such that it leaves time to workaround things that break?
Comment 2 Tim Waugh 2007-02-27 13:01:44 EST
Actually I don't think we need to keep those files around at all.

Fixed in CVS.
Comment 3 Patrice Dumas 2007-02-27 13:20:17 EST
Seems fine. They could be re-added later if needed anyway.
I close rawhide, feel free to reopen and reclose if you think
there is a better resolution.
