I've made an attempt at updating the Enlightenment & EFL packages for
Debian. I'm sure it's not perfect, any feedback would be great!
The work is in the debian/sid branch of the following trees:
The biggest issue: upstream doesn't bump soname for ABI/API changes, so
I've opted to rename all of the packages to reflect v1.15. I think I
have all of the Breaks & Replaces correct to get a smooth upgrade.
This gets weird with elementary. The previous packages patched a bumped
soname, and distributed as 'libelementary2'. I've reversed that choice,
and instead renamed to 'libelementary1.15' with soname 1. It seems to
work fine, and I think it's okay, since it's just a different package -
but I'm not sure if that's an acceptable change.
Todo list: EFL 1.15.2, Enlightenment 0.19.12, and Jessie backports.
