With regards to

We might also wonder if g-s-exteions-tool actually belongs into

-devel package; that might be wrong in itself.

I agree that its actually quite hidden in there. When I first
finding the package that contained `gnome-shell-extension-tool`
took a bit of searching to find the correct package.

obvioulsy, when the file was added to the -devel package, its
was not entirely clear. The same holds true for gnome-shell-perf-
btw (which likely also should not be in the -devel)

Looking into the current content of -devel, this is anyway just
misnamed (there is no development headers/libraries/anything in

As such, I propose we rename gnome-shell-devel to gnome-shell-
and have this package auto-supplement gnome-shell (so it will be
installed, in a recommended fashion).

Does that sound reasonable?

That sounds like what I would have expected it to be like in the
place - so I think that is a perfectly reasonable solution :)

Good, so the question now is: who does the work? Would you like to take
a stab at it?


PS: please don't top-post - it breaks all natural flow when reading a
text and quotes it refers to.
