Re: [opensuse-packaging] Could we decide on an official policy about pkgconfig() style BuildRequires?
Hash: SHA1

Anyway, what I wanted was to define a policy. But seeing the
reactions I don't think that's going to be possible.

The only real argument I saw against it was the "So we'd have a mix
of ways anyway which I do not like very much", that I don't
consider a problem. So I will continue with the status quo: I will
use pkgconfig() BuildRequires in my request just hoping nobody
rejects them because of that.

I am not against a policy or a preferred way to do things as long as
it doesn't mean I'll have to convert about a hundred existing packages
just for the sake of it (rather than converting packages when I am
working on them anyway).

Especially as I use a lot of my stuff for SLE too.
