Hi Alin

splitting root into subpackages it may make sense from the point of view of
the developers and edge users...
the mainstream user wants the things just installed and does not care about
these subtleties...

I propose you to create a binary package eg root, -devel, -doc and -examples
if any...
what is important with root would be to have all or almost all the
capabilities on at build time and installed.

This is true, but then also the root package has to depend on it's devel
package. And having the possiblility to install is an advantage that does not
cost much but in some cases is an advantage.
Since a few weeks also a "root" package was built that just depended on all
other packages, but somehow this is not build anymore...

* shlib-policy-missing-lib

this we can solve later. it is useful if one want different versions of the
lib installed in parallel...

Ok, then this will be very complicated to fix...
The libs are already installed in versioned subdirectorys, but root requires
them to be installed in the non-versioned directorys, and therefore there are
links from the nonversioned directory to the versioned one...

Regards
Thomas

regards,

Alin
