I think most of our users also feel confused they have
to install deb
package instead of dpkg/debhelper, because no one tends to read our
packaging wiki first if he already tried packaging once on
Although that is somewhat mitigated by the fact that deb provides dpkg
So a "zypper install dpkg" should already do the right thing.
Why not bind update-alternative and dpkg together,
instead of deb?
When I worked on that deb package, I saw those are actually built
See the note of Michal (cited at the top of this mail):
update-alternatives is packaged separately so that it can be built
early in a bootstrap cycle. dpkg has quite huge lists of
BuildRequires, some of which might require update-alternatives.
