With regards to

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

-devel package; that might be wrong in itself.

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

obvioulsy, when the file was added to the -devel package, its
purpose
was not entirely clear. The same holds true for gnome-shell-perf-
tool
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
there)

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

Does that sound reasonable?


That sounds like what I would have expected it to be like in the
first
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?

Cheers

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


I would defintely like to give it a go. I will probably need some
guidance along the way since I do not have much experience with
package maintenance, but we'll cross that bridge when we get there.

Sorry about top-posting, its done by default in gmail and never
realised it was an issue till you pointed it out. Is this email in the
correct form you would expect?
