New gperftools packaging scheme is too complicated
Last modified: 2013-06-19 17:36:20 EDT
The new layout of the gperftools package is not satisfactory.
In contrast to google-perftools, gperftools doesn't have a main package that could be installed.
Installing gperftools-devel does not install pprof.
To be able to use the tools one needs to install both gperftools-devel and pprof separately, which is clearly subideal.
I would suggest making the main package an empty metapackage that requires gperftools-devel and pprof, much like it used to be.
