Re: [opensuse-buildservice] repositories/openSUSE:/../Contrib/standard/ package dependency on devel-only packages
Contrib is End-Of-Life

Nothing in there is supported. If the "maintainer" wants it to be
useful, he should move it out of contrib. Seems like it should live
in devel:languages:perl if it needs dependencies from there.

http://lists.rosenauer.org/pipermail/evergreen/2013-September/001278.html

It turns out the problem's solution was to enable
http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/devel:/languages:/perl/openSUSE_11.4/devel:languages:perl.repo

Is something not broken somewhere that a BS package in *standard* built for
an "out of support" release requires some packages that exist only as devel
packages? Shutter pulled in 28 dependencies, many of which were available
only after enabling
http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/devel:/languages:/perl/openSUSE_11.4/devel:languages:perl.repo

Is this going to happen again if I want to install shutter everywhere, 12.1,
12.2, 12.3, 13.1....?
