Heya again

= utils =

I've looked how libicu is packaged (C/C++ unicode handling library).

And their utils (small binary utilities) and examples are packaged as part of the -dev package. This actually makes sense. Majority of the users only want the shared library and nothing else to run their GUI front-ends. Shall we move all utitilies to the -dev package and remove diatheke package?

= examples =

the configure can be run with enable-examples flag. Shall we do that and ship it in the /usr/shared/doc/libsword-dev/examples?

= tests =

There are tests for the library, shall we try to package them and somehow run them at the end of the build (eg pbuild?). I might struggle with this one.

= bindings =

There are quite a few bindings we really should try to package them. All of them are in the binding/ directory. I'm trying to figure out how to do this with cdbs.

Overall libsword packaging still has TODO's.

With best regards
