Description Lennart Poettering 2012-09-12 20:21:51 UTC
Please split up the qrencode package into one for the qrencode tool and one for the qrencode library.

We added a dep on the qrencode lib to systemd, which has the effect of pulling in libpng into our minimal installation set śince the qrencode tool requires it. In order to minimize the minimal installation set it would be great if qrencode could be split up so that this dep doesn't matter for the minimal set.

Hi, Lennart.

I'll work on splitting out the binary/libs into separate subpackages. I've got a test build running in a local mock now; hopefully that'll fix it up. :)
