Looking at the packaging conventions, I didn't see any information for
creating devel packages, which is something rather... common :-) (or

It looks to me like all packages use different conventions for this,
while a standard pattern for summary and description would make sense.
Eg, a standard summary could be "Development files and libraries for
$package" and a standard description could be "Headers and libraries for
developing applications that use $something."
We had that in the past, but it didn't worked out. There were too many
exceptions necessary. But I don't remember details anymore.
Also, right now, it's not clear to me if the
group of the devel package
should be the same as the non-devel package or something like
Should be somewhere below Development, not in the same RPM group as
the main package is.
